TIP OF THE DAY
RAISING WITH 3 CARD SUPPORT
With 6-9 points it is often better to raise partner's major with three cards than to respond 1NT. e.g.
There is very little risk because if partner has not opened with a 5 card major, he has a balanced hand with 15-19 points (with only 12-14 balanced would have opened 1NT!)
Only raise partner's opening bid with three cards when:
1) Partner opened a major.
2) You have 6-9 points (not more).
3) You have a shortage (at least a doubleton).
4) If partner opened 1 don't raise with three hearts when you can bid 1.
