When partner makes a takeout double, you have a number of choices. When your RHO passes, you will usually make a minimum bid in an unbid suit. That could be based on a total Yarborough. Therefore, when you do have some values, you should try hard to let partner know that you are not broke. Of course, sometimes your RHO won't pass. If you don't have something to talk about, you are now welcome to pass. However, that does NOT mean that because you are off the hook, you should be eager to pass. A free bid does NOT promise a rose garden. In his 50 examples, Marty will discuss: If RHO passes:

  • When you're forced to lie, what is the lesser of evils?
  • How much strength is needed for a jump?
  • What does a cue-bid show?
  • Is this the right time to bid up-the-line?
  • Does a jump response promise a 5-card suit?

If RHO doesn't pass:

  • What is the correct mindset?
  • Exactly what do you need to make a free bid?
  • How relevant is the vulnerability?
  • How can you show values when you lack a descriptive bid?
  • Can you ever make a Michaels-type cue-bid?
  • When your RHO raises, what is your #1 priority?

After a redouble:

  • Which notrump bids are Unusual?
  • How can you survive when you are in trouble?
  • How can you attack when you are not in trouble?
