What is the best wrong bid?January 14, 2018
You find yourself with big support for partner’s suit, but otherwise a really bad hand. How high do you bid in a competitive auction? Bidding to the 2-level shows a couple of points, while bidding to the 3-level shows fewer values and is more preemptive. The 4-level is similar to the 3-level, but generally you want a few high card points to bid that high. With almost no high cards at all, the 3-level seems to be the best choice.
