Original Suit Bids of One There is no exception to the rule hat an original bid must always ontaln at lensl two quick tricks For original suit bids of one, the ddltlonal requirements are a bid' able suit and lour to five probable ricks. Biddable suits are rated in the ollowlug manner: A four-card suit must be headed by at least ace, queen or king queen, A live-card suit must, be headed by nl least ace, king, queen or king ack. A five-card suit, headed by lucen. ten is considered a doubttu biddable suit, but occasionally i 1 mist, be bid in preference to a no rump, e.SjKdally if the hand holds sufficient high card strength and void or singleton. While llrst ami second hands are only required lo hold four probable ricks Including two qulck'"trlcks third hand is required to have one :ialf quick tiick more nnd fourth Irnnd should not open the blddlni unless lie feels confident that h can prevent, the opponents from going gnme If they enter the bid ding on the second round, there fore the hand should contain on quick trick move—or three, qulc tricks. The following examples will 11 lustrntc original suit bids of one (A) (B) S—19-1-4 S—A-K-5 H—A-K-9-5-S II—A-Q-9-5 D—J-8-C I>—J-8-6 C—3-5 C—9-5-3 Hani] A Holding (his hand, first or second hand should OIKII the bidding with one heart ns tlie hand contains two high card tricks and two long curds, or low card tricks the heart, suit, but It should not be bid third or fourth hand. Supixising: however, that we were to substitute the king of diamonds for the jack of diamonds, then third hand woutrt be entitled lo open the bidding jwith one heart as tho hand how contains one-half quick trick more but fourtli hand should pass o Hand B , Hand B cnn be opened one heart In tiny position ns tho hand contains three and one-half high card tricks and the required number of probable tricks. In addition, there is not. much danger ot the oppo- icnts going game in either hearts >r spades with this type of holding.
