Bridge 6/20

This week, we are looking at deals where the side with the balance of power does not have an eight-card or better major-suit fit. Then we usually end in three no-trump, but we are studying ways to find out if that contract is doomed because of a weak suit.

Bridge 6/19

Yesterday, we started to look at how to investigate the viability of three no-trump when we have uncovered game-going values with a minor-suit, not a major-suit, fit. After you have agreed on a minor suit, bidding a new suit at the three-level shows a stopper in that suit and implies weakness in an unbid suit. Partner is being encouraged, if he knows your weak suit, to bid three no-trump with that suit covered; or to show values in another unbid suit if he is not sure of your weakness. This deal complements yesterday's because the South hands are identical.

Ask Dr. Gott 6/19

DEAR DR. GOTT: My husband is 56 years old. Every year he has a blood test to monitor his cholesterol levels. Here is his profile: cholesterol 200, triglycerides 322, HDL 39 and LDL 97. Last year his triglycerides were also elevated at 287, with normal being less than 150.
