SHOW ONE SUIT FHIST WHENEVER YOU HAVE two aulta worth showing to your partner, It Is usually sound tactics to tell him about one of them first. If you don't, you may never get a chance to tell him about the other ono and give him a chance to choose the ono which fits hla hand the better. Jumping to 2-No trump after his opening suit bid Is a poor way to ahow your strength If you have two good four-card majors. It may result In your never having an opportunity to disclose the oult which Is the bent contract for your aide. A J 9 6 V 8 7 5 -1 4 A Q 10 7 S * A 10 8 7 8 (Dealer: North. Neither aide vulnerable.) After North bid 1-Dlamond on this deal, South colled 2-No trump, North S-Dlamontb, South S-Spadea and North 3-No trump, the only bid he could possibly moke at that stage. West led the club Q, and South didn't have a chance to make his contract. No matter what he did, the defenders were certain to collect three tricks in clubs, plus one In each major suit. "Why didn't you ahow your fine hand with bid of 2-Spades?" asked North. "Then otter my 3- Dlomonds, you could have bid 3- Hearts and I would have taken you to four." "I don't like to bid that way unless my suits arc of flvo cards," rc- spondid South. "If I have only four- card oulta, I liko to bid the 2-No trump Orat, after which you will know that any suit I name la only a four-carder." North conceded that this was perhaps a /air Idea If there Was only one suit to show, but If there were two, especially both of them majors, ono should bo shown first. "But Isn't that likely to fool my partner Into thinking I have five- carders?" asked South. "Not If, when ho hears that second suit, ho realizes you may hava had a pair of four-cardors and ' governs himself accordingly." North was convinced.
