You also don't have to read this article but we feel that it will be of great interest to nearly all b r i d g e players. They won't have to use the bid but they will have some idea of what to do when it is used against them.

It also implies some p r e p a r a t i o n for anything your partner may do. With 12 points North has a very good negative double. South cue-bids spades since ·his hand is very strong and he wants to force to game. West's double of two spades gave North a chance to pass a n d a w a i t developments. When South bid hearts North felt strong enough to invite a slam and South accepted. 'South won the first spade; returned the suit and ruffed the t h i r d lead.

When West showed out on the third club, South knew he had started with exactly six spades; three hearts and two of each minor suit. Now South entered dummy with the ace of diamonds and played dummy's last trump. East had to go down to one diamond so as to keep the high club. South discarded his last club and claimed since the queen of diamonds was sure to drop.
