29             1. Only the first three cards in any
30             suit can be losers.
31             2. Only the ace, king and queen are
32             winners.
33             3. ‘Droppable Honours’ count as
34             losers (i.e. a singleton king or a
35             doubleton quen).
36             4. The queen counts as half a loser
37             except when in combination with
38             ace, king or jack.

1              4/26/2009                   1 C asking bids
2    In the simplified version all reference to Delta, Theta is replaced by Iota. A second ask is allowed.
3    In the simplified version Zeta = Beta
4    In the simplified version Gamme repeated is not used
5    In the simplified version, and after a balancing hand with 2NT bid, use structure as in sheet 2NT-Mbal (not 1C>2NT which is Baron)
6    In the simplified version a separate Iota is used
7    When a positive answer has been given, regardless of vulnarability, the asking sequence is firmly established.
8    If the positive bid by pd is interfered then pass= an asking 2 step down and X = an asking 1 step down.
9                          Use down arrow (Over Column B) for quick jump in sheet
10                         Opener is defined as the hand doing the asking
11                         Responder is the hand that answers the questions
12                         Priorities: 1) Trumps 2) general controls 3) Specific controls (4♣ Beta takes precedence over 4♣ Epsilon)
13                         A repeated trump asking bid in same suit always sets the suit as trump. May be used if first respons is negative
14                         H = Ace, King or Queen                      <= stands for less or equal

18                         Alpha is always the first bid in an Asking sequence if it used at all (Alpha cant be used later)
19                         An ask again by opener in a new suit and after neg response on first Alpha ask
20                         the second ask is Iota. A second ask in first suit is Theta (se below Theta)

31   β       Beta          Beta is next bid up the line (exept 1C>1H>1S and is instead Alpha)
32                         High level beta is not generally available above 4♣/4♦

35                   4D is beta if C may be a possible trump and also in the case 4C is an answer to an asking bid
36                   Bid in short suit, like the case maybe with Marmic, is Beta
37                   A bid can never be Beta if Responders exact number of controls is already known

52                   is gamma (no other suit has been agreed trump). Length in suit should be 4 or longer. Gamma deals with top honours

78   δ       Delta      It is a primary trump asking bid. Delta deals with top honours.
79                      Only used over a jump shift of negative or semi-positive respons when opener has an extremly strong hand.
80                      Step responses as for Theta. Next bid by opener, after a positive response (4 steps, 3 in simplified version) (weak scale).
81                      is Beta (weak scale). After a negative repons next ask is Iota.
82
83   ε       Epsilon    Specific control ask in a side-suit once a suit has been agreed as trump. Exact degree of control that
84                      Responder has in that suit is defined. Beta takes precedence over Epsilon. Epsilon is exactly.
85                      a third bid in a suit in which Opener has already made two Epsilon Asks is always "to play" unless Responder

86                      has shown a singleton or void in that suit and their exact number of controls is not yet known, in which case the bid is Beta

132                        doubleton in the suit, or is likely that that is the case. Iota is always used with 5c+ suit
133                        Iota is used if responder has shown a balanced positive respons. Iota deals with top honours.
134                        Iota is used as a repeated ask in a different suit. (In responders suit it is Gamma)
135                        A secondary Iota is not used.

 2                                       Opener has poor value outside the opening suit but may have a shortage

 4                                       Bidding terminates when Responder passes, bids NT or returns to openers suit
 5                                       or if Responder bid is a bid that bypasses all asking bids like 3D-4H where 4H is to play
 6                                       if the opening bid is doubled then responders bid is unchanged to a pass by opponent but first bid is XX
 7                                       asking for Controls.
 8                                       If openers bid is overcalled then X of oponents suit is an asking bid (a pass is we give up) like:

 3   Rule 9. Pass or take action after reopening double?
 4   To judge continued bidding when openers Pd1 bid gets overcalled and Pd2 passes (cant make a penalty bid) and Pd1 reopens
 5    with a double*.
 6   Reopen only if short in OC suit (1-2 cards). Pd 2 should add level of intended bid + number of cards in OC´s suit + AKQJT
 7   number of high cards
 8   in the OC suit. If sum is 9 or higher pass for penalty. If less than 9 Pd 2 shall take some action.
 9   *) Dont reopen (Pd1) with double when the holding is strong (use bid of another suit or cue bid OC suit)
10   Ex: 1S-(2h)-P-(P)-X-(P)-? With H: AQ987 sum is: 2 (level 2)+5+2=9 > Pass. With AQ98 sum is: 8 > take some action but DONT pass.

187
188
189   General rules when 1 NT is overcalled
190   0) Transfer Lebensohl has the advantage over Lebensohl that it allows invitation to a lower ranked suit then opps suit
191   1) 2-level suit bids are natural and merely competitive (Does not apply to a 2C overcall with C holding. X of that 2C= 2C systemic)
192   2) Fast (route bypassing 2NT) 3-level suit (not 3NT) bids are All TRANSFERS, normally either weak or FORCING
193   1NT-(2D natural)-3H(transfer to S, S available at 2-level so forcing strong)-(P)-3S-(p)-P(if weak)
194   1NT-(2D natural)-3H(transfer to S, S available at 2-level so forcing strong)-(P)-3S-(p)-4C(brake transfer with good S support)-4S (or more)
195   3) SLOW (route via 2NT) 3-level suit bids are ALL NATURAL & INVITATIONAL (not transfers)/A slow cue-bid of clubs is not possible/
196   4) FAST transfer into Opps suit (a) and slow bids of Opps suit are cue bids, showing interest in any unbid Major(s)
197   a) 1NT-(2D, D suit)-3C(fast transfer into Opps suit D and holding is 4+/4+ in Majors, no stopper in D)
198   b) 1NT-(2D, D suit)-2NT(Lebensohl)-(P)-3C-(P)-3D(slow bid into opps suit=stop in D and interest in unbid Majors, 4+/4+)
199   5) Bids of 3NT show game values and DENY 4-card interest in any unbid Majors
200   6) SLOW cues and SLOW bids of 3NT PROMISE a stop in Opps suit
201   7) FAST Cues and FAST bids of 3NT DENY a stop in Opps suit
202   8) A slow bid (route over 2NT) of a new suit, using Transfer Lebensohl, is ALWAYS INVITATIONAL.
203   This is not always the case för normal Lebensohl
204   a) 1NT-(2S)-2NT-(p)-3C-(p)-3H (INVITATIONAL with 5c+H). In Lebensohl this is competitive since 2H was not available at the 2-level
205   9) Only problem with Transfer Lebensohl is to show invitational hands in C´s
206   1NT-(2x)-3S (transfer to C´s) and 1NT-(2S)-2NT-(p)-3C-(p)-P(weak in C´s)/4C(only way to show invitational in C´s)-(p)-4NT(to play not RKC)
207   10) A FAST bid of the suit BELOW theirs e.g.; 1NT-(2S)-3H is a transfer into their suit and therefore a CUE-BID of their suit S´s
208      (interest in unbid M (4crads) and no stopper in S) and 1NT-(2S)-3S is not a CUE-BID but a strong invitation into in C´s

55   When declarer plays
56
57   Ist priority is to show count (number of cards) using o/e method. An odd card below 10 of the spot card is odd number of cards.
58   A play of an even number of the spot card is an even number of cards hold in that suit. If that is not possible use UDCA,
59   Try to avoid the 9 and 10 spot card which may be useful later.
60   Example 1: You hold 2, 5, 7. First play is 5. Next play can be 2 or 7 to give preference. The 2 spot card indicating preference for
61   a lower suit and the 7 preference for a higher suit.
62   Example 2: You hold the spot cards 2,5,6,7. You first play is 2 or 6 to show even number of cards in that suit. Using the 6 You will have
63   the option to give preference on 2nd card played in that suit. A 5 indicating preference for a lower suit (or just 2 cards) and the 7 preference
64   for a higher suit.
65   Example 3: You hold 2,4,6. Play of an odd number is not possible. First play is 6 or 4 followed by a lower spot card depending of
66   preference. Your partner is likely to understand if You have the proper spot card to play.
67
68   When You cant follow suit it is recommended to show preference. An Odd discard in a suit indicating encourage in that suit. An
69   even discard in a suit show no interest of that suit. The first discard is showing preference. The following discards are showing count.

                                                                                            Carding


          A            B           C            D            E             F            G             H           I           J        K     L
70
71   When Your partner plays
72
73   1st priority is to show attitude. An odd spot card (if available) show interest. If no odd card is available use a low card.
74   However, In case your partner leads an Ace you should give count. If partner leads a King you should give attitude.
75   If it is obvious that attitude is of no use you should give count.
76
77   Example 4: You hold AKJ82, xx, Txx, Axx and trump is H. You lead spade A. Partner holding is: 52,xxx,xxxx,xxxx
78   On the Ace partner will play the spot card 2 indicating an even number enabling a play of the King and a ruff of the 3rd spade.
79   What card shall be played as the 3rd spade? Play the 2 to indicate a lower rank suit for return. In this case clubs for an additional
80   spade ruff.
81   If partners holding instead was: T,7,6,5 it may not be wise to indicate count setting up a Queen for declarer.
