Tip of the Week - Week 2 November

The OVERCALL in NT

The OVERCALL in NT promises a stop in the opponent's suit and more points than opening 1NT

Tip of the Week - Week 1 November

WHAT TO OPEN?

If not opening INT,  OPEN LONGEST suit.    This ensures your rebid is correct

Tip of the Week - October 25

TOP OF THE SEQUENCE LEADS

Always lead the  safest lead. Sequence may be interrupted.

For example - AKJx, KQ10x.   Lead top honour.

Quite often the correct Final contract is Passed Out

Do not feel obliged to Bid 4th in Hand. PASS.

Stayman Convention

Stayman is a bidding convention in the card game contract bridge. It is used by a partnership to find a 4-4 or 5-3 trump fit in a major suit after making a one notrump (1NT) opening bid and it has been adapted for use after a 2NT opening, a 1NT overcall, and many other natural notrump bids.

The convention is named for Sam Stayman, who wrote the first published description in 1945, but its inventors were two other players: the British expert Jack Marx in 1939, who published it only in 1946, and Stayman's regular partner George Rapée in 1944.
