Responding to NoTrump rebids  

 
The only difference between responding to an opening 1NT and responding to a notrump rebid is that the opener will have shown a different number of points. The notrump bidder usually leaves the final decision regarding the contract to partner.

What is my second bid?

“Responder usually decides the contract after a NoTrump rebid”

Responding to NoTrump rebids

This decision is essentially the same as when you are responding to your partner's opening 1NT. Responder simply calculates the total point count and decides…

    whether or not to bid to the game level or stay in part-game

  • 25 HCP for NoTrumps:
  • 26 TP for game in a Major Suit : 4 or 4
  • 27 TP for game in a Minor Suit : 5 or 5
