TIP OF THE DAY

NEVER DENY A FOUR CARD MAJOR

What does this mean? Firstly, it primarily applies to the responder after partner opened one of a suit (not 1NT). It does not apply when opening the bidding. Always open with longest suit even if it is a minor.

When responding to an opening bid of 1 1, 1 or 1 with less than 12 points bid a four card major at the one level if you can rather than bidding 1NT or a longer minor at the two level. It doesn't matter how poor the suit is! e.g.

South
5 4 3 2
6
A 8 5
K Q J 7 2

NorthEastSouthWest
1Pass1

On this hand it is correct to bid 1 rather than 2.

With less than 12 points you will normally only be able to bid one of your suits so more important to show the major. With 12+ points bid the longest suit first as you have enough strength to bid both your suits.
