This bid is unlikely to be passed out, particularly since most opponents in the protective seat will do everything in their power to stop opener playing in his choice of contract at the one level. You can then bid strongly on the next round. With Hand B a 1S opening is reasonable, but you might consider 2NT. Sometimes improvising a 2NT opening with a hand shape that is hardly balanced is best! ——————————————————————————————————4/7—— WIN a video recorder 465 t TO LIST EVENTS CALL: 0118 9351052 TWO MONTHS IN ADVANCE PLEASE Go Green Digitiser TV guide TV tonight
