Advanced Lesson 11 – 2/1 (Two over One) Part 2

Now that we have covered the basics of the 2/1 system, essentials of the Forcing 1 Notrump response and associated responder rebids, we are ready to explore an assortment of agreements to consider with your various 2/1 partners.  Here is a sample of opener rebids for us to consider…

1. 1H/S – 2x; 2N  Promise a stopper?

2. 1H/S – 2C/D;  Game forcing?

3. 1H/S – 2x; 2H/S  Promise a 6 card suit?

4. 1H/S – 2D; 3C  Any special requirements

5. 1S – 2D; 2H – 3C  What does this mean?

6. When is responders 1 Notrump non-forcing?
