(186) Finding Fits: Splinter Bids by Opener

Hi Again -

We end our month on "Finding Fits" with a discussion of Opener splintering in support of Responder's suit.  This high level jump by Opener shows extra values, a fit for Responder's suit (setting trump), and shortness in the new suit bid.  This allows Opener to "paint a picture" of their hand and leaves Responder well placed to make a final decision about how to continue the bidding.  

I hope you find this an interesting and useful addition to your bidding tools.
