When you open, partner responds, and the bidding comes back to you, it's now time to decribe the shape and strength of your hand in more detail.
Counting hands out will help you become a better player. Make plays based on what you find out about the opponents' hands.
Want to bid in a competitive auction but lack the strength or suit length required? Perhaps a negative double is the solution.
When you hold a lot of the opponents' trumps, or you have a very strong hand and the opponents reach a high level, you might want to increase the score when they fail. That's when you make a penalty double
Get into the auction with a double when the opponents preempt and you have an opening hand with a shortage in their suit and no long suit of your own.
Partner wants you to bid your longest suit, and to decide how high to go. Be accurate here!
Put what you have been learning to test with our monthly challenge hands.
