Get to the best contract! June Patton, an ACBL Accredited Best Practices teacher will teach a course on Two-Over-One Game Forcing (2/1 GF) starting Friday, May 20, 2022 at 9:30 AM at the French Broad Community Center. The class will run assuming there is sufficient interest.
Two-Over-One Game Forcing (2/1 GF) is a variation of the Standard American bidding system. It helps players reach the optimal contract more easily by removing some of the guesswork in the auction.
When the auction begins 1D/H/S, a simple 2-level response in a new suit is forcing to game.
2/1 GF offers the psychological reassurance that you'll never be accidentally dropped in a partscore. Have you ever made a "forcing" rebid with 17 points and watched partner pull out the Pass card? If so, you might know what I mean.
As for actual science, 2/1 saves bidding space by curtailing the need for strong jump bids by either player. This extra space can be used to bid games and slams more precisely.
The course will consist of eight two hour classes covering the following topics:
- Two-Over-One Game Forcing
- Supporting Partner’s Major Suit Opening Bid
- 1NT Forcing
- Responding to Partner’s 1D Opening Bid
- Finding Slam
The class is appropriate for intermediate to advanced players who have familiarity with the Standard American bidding system.
Vaccination and pre registration are required. You can register HERE.
There is no textbook required for this course. June will email handouts prior to each session.
