Tuesday Lesson Practice Game 28 June 2022

 Hi All,

It went reasonably smoothly today. Congratulations to Wynne and Joe for a great 65.69% for the top. You've all done very well.

Next week I still hope to finish Lesson 2 and get started with No Trump Openings. You'll love it! It's a breeze compared to one-of-suit openings. Try to come a little earlier so that we can get started on time.

See you next time.

Dave





South and West pass and North opens 1 Heart with his 5-card major and 16 HCPs plus 2 for the singleton and 1 for the doubleton. South has 3-card Heart support but wants more information. He responds 1 Spade to force partner to describe his hand. Since Spades might end up as trump, North must subtract the point he added and ponders whether he still has the strength to jump-shift to 3 Clubs. He has five prime honors with the AKQ and AK so decides to jump to 3 Clubs to force to game. South goes to 4 hearts and it makes for a good score.
