Bridge with Harold Schogger © Weak Twos Why should we play weak 2s ? Which hand do we pick up more often ? With hand a) we have a traditional Acol Strong two With hand b) we have six card suit and unless we put a Club with our Spades we cannot do very much But we would love to bid !!!!
Bridge with Harold Schogger © Weak TWO Opening bids allows us to open with this hand and MANY MANY more like it We open 2 and partner will know :- a) We have a six card suit b) We have precisely 6- 10 points c) We have Made an IMMEDIATE LIMIT BID d) We have Made a DISRUPTIVE NUISANCE BID ie we have made a lower level PRE-EMPT e) Who makes all the decisions now ? ? PARTNER DOES - partner is captain of the auction since you made the limit bid
Bridge with Harold Schogger © OR Bare 6 points not great suit Bare 6 points great suit Good 9 points not great suit Good 8 points great suit Best quality 2 bid- solid suit What do we open on all these hands ?
Bridge with Harold Schogger © What does partner do after you make your weak 2 bid ? if he has very good 15/16 points he will probably bid 4 or 4 straight away raising 2 to 4
Bridge with Harold Schogger © B) he may just pass if he has very little Pass to the 2 opener
Bridge with Harold Schogger © C) He may make a pre-emptive bid and rush to 4 or 4 to further disrupt the opposition Raise the 2 opener to 4
Bridge with Harold Schogger © OR He may not be sure what to do next as he has an invitational hand that might be good for Game if partner has the right 9/10 points so he needs to find out more He now needs to know exactly what partner has and makes an enquiry as follows :-
Bridge with Harold Schogger © Partner tell me more He BIDS 2NT which is a BLUE CLUB ENQUIRY also called OGUST and it works as follows :- a) 3 = I have BAD POINTS and BAD SUIT b) 3 = I have BAD POINTS but GOOD SUIT c) 3 = I have GOOD POINTS but BAD SUIT d) 3 = I have GOOD POINTS and GOOD SUIT e) 3NT = I have solid suit AKQ to six
