After They Interfere (#1 of 7)


quiz-pic

In this series of 7 Quizzes (this is the first) our partner opens on the one level and the opponents overcall or Double.

In this quiz, our opponents make a takeout double.

Responder should usually redouble with 10+. But, with 10+ and a very shapely hand, tend to bid naturally (no XX--the opponents might get in your way and prevent you from showing your suits).

If you Pass after the Double, it doesn't really say anything. Usually it is a weak hand. It doesn't show (nor deny) support for the suit partner has opened.  For example, 1♠ (X) Pass is usually 0-6 with nothing special to say (but could be a bit stronger).

New suit bids: forcing on the 1-level, but not on the 2-level. (This is a matter of partnership agreement, but this is a reasonable way to play it).  So,   1♠ (X) 1♠ is forcing, but 1♠ (X) 2♠ is not forcing.

Jump-raise is weak. Example:  1♠ (X) 3♠.  With a good raise, start with XX or a conventional 2NT.
