Most hands that will produce 11 tricks with a minor suit declaration, will make game at cillicr a major suit or no trump, either a major suit or no trump, cither of which will count more than game in the minor suit, tail of course there are a certain percentage of the hands that will produce game only at a minor suil. Under the quantitative showing of tricks syslcm, you must remember that a one bid clearly states that Ihc bidder's hand does not conlaln six probable tricks, therefore you must be careful not to stretch your bid eitlicr in sup- lllh Ul.

Now if you were to bid two sjiades or three clubs this would be a forcing bid am would require partner lo rc-birt. It must be remembered thnl nc trump bids ard never forcing bids e. g. if partner bids one ol an\ suit, opponent passed and you b!f two no trump. Even Ihough I hi is more than necessary, it Is li no Irnmp, nnd therefore is not r forcing bid. If partner has ai absolute minimum hand, he cai pass your two no trump.
