This week we look at Responder's options when RHO enters our 1NT auction with 3-level interference.
When the opponents open a Weak 1NT, we should adjust our bidding system to accommodate it.
Woolsey is a more advanced bidding system over the opponent's 1NT opening bid. Woolsey focuses on finding Major suit fits.
Here we discuss some systems for bidding over an opponent's 1NT opening bid - DONT and Meckwell.
Just as Responder can show a fit for partner, a strong hand, and shortness with an immediate splinter bid, so can Opener when Responder bids a new suit.
Here we examine Bergen Raises, an optional approach for using additional conventional raises (beyond Jacoby 2NT and splinter bids) at the 3-level after partner opens the bidding with 1-Major.
This week we look at another option for trying for slam -- Splinter Bids by Responder.
Having a tool to show a good hand and a large fit for partner's Major suit is valuable for exploring slam without getting the auction too high -- Jacoby 2NT does just that!
We finish off our discussion of visualizing the opponents' hands with some examples that explore how to play the hand during the auction.
When listening the opponents' auction it is important to visualize both of the opponents' hands in order to defend the hand best. Here we focus on what Responder's hand looks like and how to make use of that information.
