Advanced Lesson 13, 2/1 Slam Bidding, Jacoby 2 Notrump, Splinter Bids, Cuebids and more

Greeting Bridge Friends,

Finally, it’s time to step up to the table and take our best shot at bidding and making a slam contract.  Whether you play the 2/1 system, Standard American or something else, in this lesson we will cover many of the popular slam methods and conventions to propel your partnership to bid and make the coveted 12 trick contract – or more!  In addition to cuebidding controls, we will explore Blackwood and Gerber conventions including 14-30 and 03-14 Roman Keycard Blackwood, the Jacoby 2 Notrump mild slam asking sequence, splinter bids and even discuss Exclusion Blackwood, Blackwood responses with voids, the three possible meanings of a 5 level major suit raise (depending on the context) and more.   And that’s just the beginning!  Here at BridgeHands you’ll have the opportunity to play over 15 Bridge Hands that will go beyond finesses and promotion plays, including lead-directing plays, squeeze plays, analyzing inferences, etc.

So with over 2 hours and 40 minutes of animated video material, you won’t want to miss this lesson, discuss partnership agreements you may have missed, and consider adopting some of our BridgeHands recommendations.  And as always, we have a plethora of  additional Bridge hands here at BridgeHands – we welcome you to view our online archive with hundreds of hours of Bridge videos are always available here:
