1NT Overcall
..... see less

On board 17 from the Wed 13th Jan joint Keighley & Bradford event, North at my table opened 1 with their distributional hand and East overcalled 1NT showing 15-17 points and at least one stop in diamonds. West holds a good 9 points including 4 hearts so needs to find out by Stayman whether East also has hearts. ..........

Hand 3 from the Wed 23rd Dec joint Keighley & Bradford event was of interest both in the bidding and play. ..........

Bidding question

The bidding on board 1 from the Wed 2nd Dec joint Keighley & Bradford event is of interest. North opens 1NT and South bids 2 [transfer]. West bids 3 holding a good hand with six hearts and the question is whether East should pass or raise to 4.

If West held only 5 hearts they would double the transfer bid to show this, also if they held a less strong hand with 6 hearts. Given that West has these alternatives with weaker hands, there is a good case for East to raise the 3 overcall to 4.

Minimum Opener

In the Wed 4th Nov joint Keighley & Bradford event East opened the bidding with this hand. Only 11 points but definitely worth an opening bid with a 5431 distribution and strength in the long suit.

Question – should East rebid 2♣, 2, or 2♠ when West responds 1♠ to the 1C opener. ..........

The Committee have decided that the club will not charge subscriptions while it is closed. Once we are able to re-open we will determine pro-rata subscriptions for the remainder of the year. If you normally pay by standing order then you can either cancel it or let it stand and we will credit you in the following year.
