Bidding and the ranking of the suits
with Tina McVeigh
As you might guess, the highest bid wins the auction. And, like an auction, you have to bid higher than the previous bid.
Which bid is higher: 1♣ or 1♦?
What about 4♥ or 4♠?
Or 6♠ or 6NT
There is a ranking to the suits we must remember while bidding:
* Remember, a Notrump contract means there is no trump suit. When you're playing a hand with a notrump contract, no suit can "trump" any other.
After you watch the video, try to answer these questions about bidding and the order of the suits:
Which of these is the highest ranking bid?
If the opponents have bid 1♥, what can you bid?
If the previous bid is 1♠, what could you bid?
If the previous bid is 2♥, what could you bid?
If nobody has bid yet, what can the first bid be?
When is the auction over?
Don't worry if any of this is confusing for now. We have hints to guide you through the auctions.
