NOVICES TIP 521

To make a weak take -out after 1NT, partner  needs ZERO or more points and at least a five card suit to guarantee having more trumps than the opponents.

e.g

9 8 6 5 4      reply  2♠ despite holding Zero

  8 6                    points

 8 7 4

9 4
   

 

 

 

INTERMEDIATES TIP  521

You and partner should have a rule that once either of you has made any sort of Limit bid then All Doubles after that should be for PENALTIES

 

ADVANCED TIP  521

In 4th seat don't be in a hurry to take your Ace and perhaps declarer will return to hand and finesse again in situations like this :-

                                                                                   DUMMY                                                                                        

                                                                                   K Q 10 6

                                                                  J 5 4                                A 3 2  (YOU)

                                                                                            9 8 7

Declarer  plays low to the King.

Play low and declarer is bound to finesse up to the Queen next

If you are in hurry, declarer will take winning line and finesse the Ten next won't he?

Playing low in tempo will hopefully result in partner's Jack becoming high.
