Preemptive Overcalls

Want a surefire way to make life hard for your opponents? Add the pre-emptive overcall to your arsenal of bidding tools!

Graeme demonstrates here how pre-empts can be used not only as an opening bid, and also as an overcall. With a long, good suit but a mediocre hand, jump two levels.

Take up maximum space and apply maximum pressure.

Hi @Annefarrell, any number of diamonds is fine. The higher you go the riskier it is but also the harder you make life for the opposition. Go with your first thought and you're normally right!
@Graeme thanks Graeme. Love your videos
