Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - May 4, 2015, Winnipeg, Manitoba C M Y K PAGE 1 Weekly Bridge Quiz Answers Q 1 - Neither vulnerable, as South, you hold: . 10 9 8 2 . K 4 3 . Q J 10 . Q 8 4 Partner opens one heart and right- hand opponent passes. What call would you make? A - In order to bid one spade when you have a heart fit, you need enough values to be able to jump to three hearts at your next turn. This hand lacks those values. Bid two hearts. Q 2 - North- South vulnerable, as South, you hold: . 8 . A Q 9 7 3 . A 8 5 . J 8 7 4 The bidding: SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST 1 . 2 . 2 . Pass ? What call would you make?

K 9 8 3 . 10 7 . J 4 The bidding: WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH 1 . 1 . 2 . * ? * Diamond fit, invitational or better What call would you make? A - Everyone seems to have a good hand, including you.

Void Partner opens one club and right- hand opponent passes. What call would you make?

Bid one heart. Q 5 - North- South vulnerable, as South, you hold: . A K 8 5 . 3 2 . A J 10 4 . 9 5 4 The bidding: SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST 1 . Pass 1 . Pass 1 . Pass 2 . * Pass ? * Fourth suit forcing, artificial game force What call would you make? A - Partner has forced you to bid, but you have no bid. No club stopper, no third heart, and no five- card suit. Bid two diamonds, the default bid in these situations. Partner should realize that you might have a hand like this. Q 6 - East- West vulnerable, as South, you hold: . Q 7 6 . Q J 8 . K 9 . K Q J 10 3 Partner opens one diamond and righthand opponent passes. What call would you make? A - You will probably end up in three no trump, but there is no rush to get there. Start describing your hand with a two club bid. You can bid no trump next.
