(262) Making Use of the 3-Level

Hi Again -

We complete our month of bidding philosophies and concepts with a look at an often neglected part of bidding, the 3-level. Partnerships spend lots of time taking about the meanings of their bids on the first round of the bidding (usually at the 1-level or 2-level) and about slam tries and other bids that often occur up at the 4-level. That leaves the 3-level often overlooked and here we discuss how we might make use of this area of bidding (other than to simply make natural bids) to help our side, especially in competitive auctions.

Keep up the hard work, but remember to enjoy yourself while you do so!
