SEMINAR - TIM CHANTER

"Lebensohl" (RealBridge and Zoom)

  • The main use of this convention is when partner has opened 1NT, with the opponents overcalling
  • Take the two hands below: 
    • Do you want to compete?
    • Do you want partner to continue the auction?

Answer:  you cannot use a bid of 3 Diamonds to show both hands:  one bid cannot mean two entirely different things.  This is the problem Lebensohl addresses, by giving you two ways of arriving at 3 Diamonds.

Find out more on Tuesday, 3rd August at 14:00

UNDO POLICY
UNDO POLICY

The club allows undo requests for genuine bidding mistakes made as a result of a mechanical error, not a lapse of concentration or forgetfulness, and only when the request is made prior to their partner's bid at the latest.  We do not allow undos for playing. Any awkward exchanges should be referred to the director. Members are reminded that you can change your settings to ensure you double click to make a bid.
