July 2018 Challenge Hand

When responder raises partner's major opening, they make as clear a description as possible of the hand's shape and point range, according to their system. 

Today it's popular to show how many trumps we hold as well as general hand quality. Hands that "match" will allow you to reach good slams with fewer points. What South chooses to bid on this hand will determine the final contract. 

After you've played the hand - you'll need an account with joanbuttsbridge.com to play online - check out the review video and leave a comment on the Challenge Hand post. I'd love to hear your thoughts about this hand.
