We’ve all had this dreaded hand before–we’ve got five hearts as responder and RHO has overcalled. We don’t have quite enough points to bid our hearts directly, so what do we do?
Our options are simple: either exaggerate our points by bidding our heart suit, or make a negative double and not show all of our length. Each time this hand comes up, it’s a judgment call. Generally, we want to opt for the negative double, since we can usually show our length on the next round. But sometimes, we won’t get the opportunity to do so. Check out how Graeme and Bajir do on this tricky deal.
