Advanced #15: Rebids, Splinters, Jacoby 2 Notrump – Slow Shows, Fast Denies

In this 192 minute mega-episode we explore Splinter Bids, Jacoby 2 Notrump, cuebids, interference bids, defensive strategies and more.  BridgeHands provides commentary and illustrative Bridge hands to bid and play in response to our survey questions 12 through 21 with over 2 dozen hands regarding opener and responder rebids.  If you are looking to make more slams, especially when you and partner only have 25 or so High Card Points, you’ve come to the right place!

This lesson goes deep, very deep with a comprehensive discussion on how “Slow Shows – Fast Denies” bidding is both important for you and your partner to accurately bid your game and slam hands, as well as utilize obstructive tactics to minimize interference from the opponents.  Of course in some circumstances frisky opponents have a mind of their own.  But worry not Bridge friends, we will encounter some of these “messy” bidding scenarios in our lesson and provide you additional tactics to succinctly and elegantly counteract their obstructive bids.
