    Well, I did the reverse bidding H and North went to 3 NT. I could have made 4 if at the end Irisked the H finesse, but played it safely and played the A of my hand. Was I wrong?

    The way I usually play, opening with 19 points, unbalanced, my second bid would have been 3NT. I’m fortunate my robot partner remembered I was reversing and bid the 3NT for me!

    I made 11 in NT. I do understand the reverse better, but really have to practice responding as well as rebidding to Master the idea from both perspectives.

  42. Raised direct to 3NT. Seems this avoided the spade lead, though I can’t think why (either lead from top of a run or lead through strength) and made five. Defence should only make four at best (DK and 3xS), but the heart lead sets up the five nicely.

    I thought a 3NT bid from responder meant 13 points. So I raised to 6NT
    E led AS then small heart. I won with a finesse of QH and played clubs, lost a finesse in diamonds making 11 tricks.
    So what responder rebid would have shown 13 points ?

    Bid 3 NT. I counted 9 tricks (4 C, 4 D, 1 H) without D finesse. Complication: entries to Dummy are scarce and if I used both, I was only guaranteed 3 Club tricks. Decided to give up one Diamond trick rather than use one of my entries. So took Club lead in hand and played A and Q of Diamonds (9 tricks now assured with 3-2 break in Diamonds revealed). Won Club return in hand again, played Spade Q to drive out A. Club return won on board, Spade K cashed, 4th C cashed, crossed to and ran remaining Ds, Heart A was 10th trick.

      Hi @jillireland
      4 in that auction is not Gerber. In fact, I would go so far as to say Gerber is never appropriate after 3NT. Your partner was just showing diamond support.
      2NT shows 18-19 balanced. You had the strength for that bid but not the shape. 2 is a better bid. It shows your unbalanced shape – promises 5 diamonds at least and 4 hearts. Once you have made your rebid, your partner knows your strength. If anyone is interested in slam, it should be him.

      Bridge players talk a lot about points. In fact, the shape of the hand is just as important.

      Have another go in 3NT – this time bidding hearts with your second bid and see how many tricks you can make. I think you’ll find it is a more successful contract than 5.

    @Tina @ Graeme Hi, just had a light bulb moment. Now I understand what has been going wrong when I play at my Bridge Club when my points are too low, I change suit, cross that barrier, then the bidding gets too high and the inevitable poor result occurs. Thanks for the great website. The teaching is fantastic. I watch the Common Mistakes videos for the Royal Members too and they are gems.

    Oh yes, just bid 3NT and made 12 so that’s a boost too.
