E.'McKENNEV Secretary American Bridge Lfagoe A following bid is one made .after an'-original bid has been made by one.of the oppiaents and is often termed a defensive bid. ll shows one and one-half to Iwo and one- half quick tricks. If", your right hand opponent is the dealer and opens the bidding, you' should ovcrcall it you hold at least a biddable four card suit and oni.and one-half to two and one- half quick tricks. If your suit la a E.pod biddable five-card suit, the total quick trickf requirement of your hand need not be over one and one-half tricks, or if you are able _to ovcrcall the opixjnsnts 1 original' bid with a bid of One you can do so with a four-card bldda- blc'suit and one and one-half quick tricks. But f you arc forced to . overcall with n two bid and have only a four card suit, your quick trick requirement is two tricks. If "partner was the dealer nnd passed, and then yoiir right hand opponent opened the bidding with a !suit, you must remember that your partner has denied holding two and one-half quick tricks anil therefore, you should hold at least two to two and one-half quick tricks to make an overcall. Other- over, if partner cnn count on your informatory double containing three to three and one-half tricks, he, with a strong hand, can pass, thereby turning the Informatory double .into a business double which may be tho means of collecting large penalties. While most ' authorities agree that all doubles - of original no trump or suit bids of one and original suit bids of two are informatory, there is some disagreement on doubles of original suit bids of three. But If you requirement trie* use as the higl outlined above, partner can easily use his own Judgment on doubles of three All doubles of two no trump are business doubles. Partner shall respond to infor matory doubles as follows: Holding one stopper In the sul doubled nun at least one quick trick nn dno biddable suit, the correct response is one no trump: Holding no stopper in the sui doubled and no biddable four-card major suit, the best suit in the hand must be blrt. With two quick tricks and a major suit containing at least king jack x x n jump bid should bi made to show partner that you. hand does contain some high care wise you-may get doubled and set; tricks. While this Jump bid is no for. a largo penalty, or you niayja forcing bkl on partner, it doe force^lhe opponents into a game- j show him definite high card trick goijig declaration. Remember that, in your hand, and he may eithe if you hold only one and one-half | show his suit or supprt yours qnt'ck tricks and partner has • cd,- there cannot be over three and one-half quick tricks in your two hands and it is quite probable that your opponents have a game-going declaration. When opporicnls open with a suit that you have stopped twice.and you -hold two quick, tricks and no biddable suit of your own. you should overcall with one no trump. While the. writer ndvcates a no trump overcall with definite quick trick requirements and a strong inlormatory ' double, this will be explained to you in later articles. At'-the present time ve arc dealing strictly with the straight forcing system. In supporting partner's varcall or (following bid, remember that he may-be bidding on a hand a great deal weaker than Is required lor an .original bid, therefore you bhduld hold one more trick to support partner than "is necessary to support an original bid. Informatory Doubles When your right hand opponent makes an original bid of cue and yqir hand contains from three lo three and one-half quick tricks, yoy." should make an Intormatory double even though you'may hold a biddable suit. This shows partner^ strong hand and even though th^ hand is trlcklcss, he is rcquir- • edrjto : take. this double out if the . Wt' : jMnd.'OOTonent passes. How- Holding three niUck tricks o belters and a good biddable live card major suit, you may jump t a game-going declaration. KG BAKING I POWDER Prize Editor redlt for editing the best college.
