DVD 20-Further into the Auction
Further into the Auction

This deals with both opener’s rebid and responder’s rebid and emphasises the point that opener should have prepared his rebid before opening. Priorities are given for opener – support partner being the obvious one. He goes on to look at how to develop the auction in 3 cases – weak opener and weak responder, weak responder and strong (16+) opener and stronger  responder hands (10+).

There is then a good discussion on Fourth Suit Forcing as a way to get a lot more information before deciding the final contract.

Well worth watching, especially for the section on Fourth Suit Forcing which will enhance every player’s bidding.
