My four main rules of drawing
trumps are as follows: -
a)Good trumps and good outside strength then
draw trumps before anybody trumps the outside Aces and kings
b)Good trumps and Bad outside then need to
make trumps separately by probable cross ruff.
c)Good trumps and a shortage somewhere in
dummy – then you might need to trump in dummy while there are still
trumps in dummy
d)You do not have trump control(no ace) and
you need to dump loser before letting opponent in with the Trump Ace.
With two five card suits you open the higher of fives
and when the suits are touching you open the higher one (not ranking) so
with 5 clubs and 5 Spades Clubs is higher when they touch so it is
correct to open 1♣ giving you
plenty of space for your rebid when partner is likely to reply in a red
ADVANCED TIP 622
bid your hand once- if you make an Informative double and partner
invites you to Game and you were absolutley minimum for your Informative
Double in the first place DO NOT ACCEPT the invitation.
