L6 – Competitive Bidding

We’ve opened balanced , unbalanced , we’ve held 12-14 points , 12-19 points and we’ve also opened strong with 20 or more points.

Our partners have responded where necessary and we’ve always ended up in the right contract, well mostly anyway.

During all of this time our opponents have blithely sat stunned into silence by our impeccable bidding.

Well that’s about to change ………… the opposition is about to get a voice. Things are about to get messy as our opponents are now to be given three tools to make our lives somewhat less sanguine :-

  • Overcalling the opening bids 
  • Judicious use of Doubles 
  • Pre-emptive bids
