AK32 J86543 AQJ63
QJ109 62 62
K72 AQ5 984
65 A2 K32


(a) Pass.  You don’t have a 5-card suit.
(b) Pass.  Your suit is lousy!  
(c) 1.  Perfect overcall.

 

5. Left-hand opponent bids 1 and partner overcalls 1.. What do you do? Give a reason for your choice.

(a)  (b) (c)
AK32 63 952
432 62 AJ62
K72 AK653 9842
653 7632 32

 

(a) 3 You have a 9-card fit. The extra trump is worth a jump.
(b) Pass No fit. Don’t bid 2 .
(c) 2. You are promising trumps, not HCP.

 

6. What do you score for the following contracts?

2 (non vul) making 3 = 140
2NT (vul) making 3 = 150
3 (non vul) making 3 = 110
4 (vul) making 4 = 620
4 (non vul) making 4 = 130
5 (vul) making 5 = 600
5   (non vul) making 6 = 480
3NT (vul) making 6 = 690
4 (vul) down 3 = -300
5 (vul) down 1 = -100
2 (non vul) down 3 = -150
1NT (vul) down 2 = -200
2NT (vul) making 3 = 150
3NT (vul) making 3 = 600
2   (non vul) making 4 = 170
4   (non vul) making 4 = 420

 

Notice the difference in the last four examples between bidding game and not bidding game.

The tricks are the same but the bonus for the part-score is 50, as opposed to 300/500.
