Bidding Rule of the Week #4

4.     After you find a fit, limit the strength of your hand as soon as you can. Once one player limits his strength, his partner becomes the “captain” of the auction.

    Marvin and Linda,
    This is probably a dumb question but how do you limit the
    strength of your hand so that your partner is captain?
    Julie

    Example: oppts are passing, 1c 1sp 2sp= 12-15 support points with 4 spades
    1c 1sp 3sp= 16-18 support points with 4 spades
    1c 1sp 4sp= 19-21 support points with 4 spades
    1c 1sp 1nt= 12-14 without 4sp flat type hand
    1c 1sp 2nt= 18-19 ” ” ‘ ‘ ”
    1c 1sp 2d is a reverse showing 16+ points and forcing, not flat
    There are also many ways a responder can limit their hands to revert back to you as captain.
