Openers NoTrump Rebid

What do I need to bid Notrump after opening a suit

Bidding

With 14 HCP and a 5 card major open the bidding with 1 of your major, partner bids you should then rebid 1NT. These two bids tell your partner everything they need to know about your hand, it is now their turn to add your strength to their hand and decide on the final contract. NOTE: Only keep bidding if they change suits.

Your Plan

Dummy goes down and in NoTrump contracts you count your winning tricks You only have 2 winning tricks you will need to develop 5 more to make your contract. for the heart Ace and Queen will leave you with another 3 tricks, finessing for the club King will give you another 2 club tricks and probably you will win another diamond trick with the King Queen diamond holding.

The Play

Play low heart on the table and cover the oppositions high cards in hand. Leads a low club from hand towards the club 9, after the club king and diamond ace are out the rest of the tricks should be yours :)

Comment

This contract can make 10 tricks if you play well, you should at the least make your contract even if you don't play well

NOTE: The above commentary is intended as a guideline only. As with any Bridge hand there are many ways to bid and play any hand. Beginners should also make extensive use of the 'Hint' button. The hints are computer generated and quite conservative, but are often useful if you are looking for a good suggestion.
