Our next duplicate (pairs) competition will be on 19th June and our next free and easy morning on 3rd July.
Our June/July revision board is titled ‘Double’ for take-out.
When opponents have opened the bidding but haven’t reached game level and partner has not bid, bidding ‘Double’ is asking partner to bid any unbid suit. There are three requirements for a suitable hand to make this bid.
- Opening values
- Shortage in opponents’ suit(s) (void, singleton or at most doubleton)
- Three card support for any unbid suit.
The board gives examples of suitable hands.
