(267) Responding to 1-minor with Both Majors

Hi Everyone -

This month we look at a variety of different auctions where Responder needs to describe their hand in some complicated auctions.

1 (267) Responding to 1-minor with Both Majors
2 (268) 3M-1 Mixed Raise
3 (269) The Impossible Spade
4 (270) Responder’s Systems After a 1NT Overcall

We start our discussion with a look at how Responder describes their distributional hands with both Major suits. One of the important parts of describing these hands is for Responder to make a plan before making their first bid. We look at what Responder should consider and how to handle these shapely hands.

I hope this helps you build good habits in thinking before you make your first bid.
