JUST BRIDGE...

 

SOMETIMES ON SUNDAY
REOPENING AFTER A WEAK JUMP OVERCALL

 

by Beverly Kraft -Eric Kokish

 
 
 Neither side vulnerable; the bidding has gone:

 

West North East South
1 2(1) Pass Pass
?      


(1) Weak jump overcall

 Although it is unappealing to sell out to the opposition when one of them has advertised weakness, this is hardly a safe position in which to reopen. A double would be for takeout, a notrump bid natural and strong. A bid in a higher-ranking suit than the first would show both greater length in the first suit and extra values. When considering reopening action, positive indicators include shortage in the enemy suit, support for the others, reserves of extra strength, and the ability to handle the auction.

What would you bid with each of the following hands?

1)
K7 AJ9 AQ10 KJ964

2)
K92 2 AQ92 KJ983

3)
KQ1083 A 5 AQ10953

4)
K4 5 AQ102 KJ9873

5)
AQ QJ87 K6 A7652

1) 2NT. This may not work well, with both a thin main suit and a minimum (your bid shows a very good 18 to a bad 20 points), but partner will often have a little something, enough for a successful part score or even a game. With a bit less, you would have opened 1NT.

2) Double. You have support for the unbid suits and partner might well have enough hearts and overall strength to convert your takeout double to penalty. Partnerships employing negative (takeout) doubles will be aware that East could have a pure penalty double of 2
and be forced to pass.

3) 3
. Your high card strength is only moderate but your playing strength is excellent. 2 would be acceptable without the A but you do not need much more than the two black jacks and three spades to have a decent play for 4. Some would risk 4 here, taking the pressure off partner.

4) 3
. Not strong enough for 3, which would suggest more in high cards. East will often hold 7-8 points, no good suit. Pass and you might find that both sides could make a low-level contract. With both spade shortage and good distribution, you should be quite safe in bidding.

5) Pass. Your heart length should prove useful on defence but your double would be takeout, not penalty, so you cannot increase the stakes. Your hand is at least a queen shy of a 2NT reopening.
