Newcomer & Novice #7: Aye-aye, Captain


In this issue, we will discuss the much maligned Bridge principle known as captaincy. Indeed, you are the captain when your partner has made a signoff bid. When this happens, it’s up to you to steer the partnership to the best contract. Thus, it’s paramount the partnership be able to differentiate between signoff, invitational, and forcing bids.

The Rule of 4 is a nice reminder to consider when finding the best trump fit with your partner. It turns out on some occasions the longest suit in one hand does not always make the best contract – after all, Bridge is a partnership game.
