Bridge 9/1

When you open with a three-bid, you promise a seven-card suit. It logically follows that a four-bid would be on an eight-bagger. But be wary of opening four of a minor because it takes the auction straight past three no-trump - often our best contract when we have a long, running minor.

DEAR DR. GOTT: My son-in-law hits the alcohol rather heavily. Anything from beer to mixed drinks. When he's with friends, it's one after another. He is taking medicine for high cholesterol. He claims that his drinking isn't the cause of it being high. I say it is.

Bridge 8/31

So far this week, we have looked at weak two-bids. What is the difference if the opening bid is at the three-level? The basic rule of thumb is that at the two-level, you promise a six-card suit, but at the three-level, you will have a seven-bagger -- one more trump equals one more trick.
