We like it when we are able to open the bidding, but don’t we all like having a little more? Extra strength? Wild distribution? Yet, some of those powerhouse hands can be challenging to bid. Learn Bridge Online and Curt Soloff are here to help! In the spirit of Halloween, LBO brings you MONSTER HANDS, a four-week series on bidding the various.
Lesson 1 – Jumping Around: Jump Rebids, Jump Raises, and Jump Shifts
Which jump bids are forcing and which are non-forcing? What do we promise with these various bids in terms of both high cards and distribution?
Lesson 2 – Reverses
We define the criteria for reverses and explore the continuations by opener and responder after a reverse takes place.
Lesson 3 – Forcing Openings
What makes an appropriate 2C opening? What options does responder have when answering this forcing opening? How do opener and responder proceed, and what happens if we get interference from the opponents?
Lesson 4 – Moving Toward Slam: Keycard Asking and Control Bidding
When should Blackwood/Roman Keycard be used and when should be avoid it? How do the trump queen and kings figure into the equation? And how is control bidding woven into our slam tries?
