Intermediate Seminar Wednesday 27 October at 14:00
This seminar is on Competitive Doubles

  • One of the most useful bidding tools in contested auctions is the double card
  • You need a clear agreement with your partner about what distribution is shown in any situation, and what level of strength
  • In addition, you need a clear agreement about when a double is for take-out and when it is for penalty

Competitive Doubles 1

The Double card is one of the most useful bidding tools in the contested auction, and can be used in many sequences by opener, responder and the opponents.

How do you interpret partner's Double in the auctions below?  What do you know about her strength and distribution?  Are you forced to bid if the next opponent passes?

  Sequence A

You                  LHO        Partner

1 Diamond      1 Heart        X

Sequence B

RHO            You                  LHO        Partner

1 Diamond     X                 1 Heart        X

If you would like to find out more about the fascinating world of the competitive double - come along next Wednesday afternoon to the seminar being run by Tim Chanter.  Please book below!
