Bridge 10/22

Yesterday, I gave an auction in which responder tried to convey a maximum for his bidding up to that point. There are other sequences in which this theme can arise. For example, opener bids two no-trump, and responder transfers into a major, perhaps bidding three diamonds to show five or more hearts.

Ask Dr. Gott 10/22

DEAR DR. GOTT: I was recently in the hospital because of lightheadedness. I am a 73-year-old woman with a history with a brain aneurysm.

No one told me anything, but I got copies of my test reports and have determined I have encephalomalacia in the area of the right temporal lobe.

Partner opens one spade, you raise to two spades, and he rebids three clubs. What does that mean, and what would you do now?

Ask Dr. Gott 10/20

DEAR DR. GOTT: I was born in the late 1960s and became very ill when I was 3. Doctors prescribed me tetracycline. I think it was the antibiotic of choice back then.

Ask Dr. Gott 10/17

DEAR DR. GOTT: It seems to me that every time I get a cold, someone tells me to sweat it out with exercise. Is this a good idea, or is rest and plenty of fluids the way to go?

Think positively and use the negative double, which is made by responder after partner's opening one-bid has been overcalled in a suit by the next player. Its primary aim is to find a fit in an unbid major.
