9 1NT openings  This week  Different continuations  By responder  Re-bids by opener  Some extra things about the scoring

10 1NT Opener  Means what?  HCP  No 5 card major  No singleton or void  Not more than 1 doubleton

11 Responses to 1NT Openings  Last week we looked at  <11 HCP no 5 card suit we bid?  Pass  <11 HCP with a 5 card suit we bid?  2 of that suit. Which is called?  A Weakness Take Out  HCP balanced we bid?  2NT Invitational  >12 HCP balanced we bid?  3NT

12 Responses to 1NT  But what if we have more than 10HCP  And the hand is not balanced  Today we will look at the bidding for these types of hand

17 Suit responses to 1NT  With 11+ HCP  And a 5 card major  Tell partner about the major by bidding it at the 3 level  This is a Forcing bid  Partner MUST not Pass  But should select the game  With 6 of the major bid the game in that suit immediately

18 Partner has opened 1 NT  This is your hand  You have 20 HCP  And a balanced hand  Game is certain  Slam may be on  If partner has 14 HCP  Bid 4NT  Partner Passes with 12  Bids 6NT with 14  Guesses with 13 QQ 88 QQ JJ 33 A AA JJ K 3 77 KK 33
