I am not a big fan of the 2 over 1 bidding system. This book shows its strong points. I use the book to see how the contracts reached by BFUN compare with those reached by 2 over 1. The two approaches share for forcing 1 no trump response, more so in BFUN than 2/1, because many 2/1 responses are used for bail outs with weak hands/5(). DIAMOND suit. After openers response, a bid of 3 CLUBS by responder says I have a bust*. All other bids (except 2 diamonds followed by three clubs) are natural. 2A – TWO HEARTS IS A DOUBLE NEGATIVE After an opening 2 CLUB bid by partner – responder bids 2 HEARTS with a bust – they bid 2 of any other suit that they have 5 cards in, with. D. “Roth” Responses: An artificial system of responses using the “2D” response as an artificial, game-forcing bid showing at least one Ace and/or one King. a. “2D” = Artificial and “Waiting” = A good hand, but one that does not qualify for one of the positive bids shown below. This “2D” waiting bid is game-forcing whereas “2H” is the Size: 15KB. After the 2 waiting bid, opener's rebids (other than in notrump) are a one-round force. The only way to stop short of game (other than 2 -2 -2NT) is if responder offers a "2nd negative." After opener bids a suit, the cheapest new suit on the 3-level is artificial and allows responder to pass if opener repeats his suit.
Introduction To The 2 Over 1 Game Force System – Part 1 This is the first of two articles introducing the basic principles of the 2 Over 1 Game Force bidding system. In this article, I will discuss auctions when responder wishes to force to game. In the second article, I will discuss auctions when responder has less than game forcing values. City Bidding Book 1 Introduction The purpose of competitive bidding is to provide a fair forum for those interested in bidding on public contracts and to help ensure that public contracts are performed satisfactorily and efficiently at the least cost to the public, while . County Bidding Book 1 Introduction The purpose of competitive bidding is to provide a fair forum for those interested in bidding on public contracts and to help ensure that public contracts are performed satisfactorily and efficiently at the least cost to the public, while avoiding fraud and favoritism in the awarding of contracts. Step Responses to 2. This convention was devised by bridge players in the past decades to allow the responder, whose partner has opened the auction with an Artificial Strong 2 bid, to inform his partner step by step the possession of the number of Aces and Kings. The bidding does not inform his partner where the Aces and Kings are located, only that he does have them.
A page book with a bidding-tree of the whole system as played by Eric Greco and Geoff Hampson during most their career. The system is a professional implementation of Standard Modern Precision (SMP), with the main change that 1C-1H denies 5+S and 1C-1S is 5+S 8+ HCP, the most frequent variation from classic SMP. The once-common 2D negative response (which showed points) is used by few players today. Modern bidding has given us lots of new choices, each with advantages and disadvantages. When designing your system, it's often helpful to find out which conventions and treatments are . a. In lower levels of bidding, when it is a bid of a suit previously bid by the Opponents, it is a forcing bid, with specific conventional meaning, depending upon the bidding environment in which it is presented; i.e., a bid showing an interest in contesting the contract and forcing Partner to bid. (Examples ) b. This is a useful overview of bidding basics using an updated Standard American system. The writing is clear and the examples and exercises are clear and useful. The chapter organization could be improved as bidding, play of the hand, and more advanced topics are included in each s:
