INTRODUCTION TO 2/1 GAME FORCE
2/1 Game Force and 1NT Forcing are OFF if Responder's RHO competes, or if Responder has already passed.
Q: [partner opens 1S] If responder's only 4 card suit is hearts and responder has opening points, do you lie and bid hearts? Or do you lie and say 1NT?
Q: with a hand that would qualify for the Jacoby 2NT would you chose that or the 2/1 reply?
Q: Do you ever bid 2clubs as responder just to show you have an opening bid or is that contorting too much.
Q: I am confused because without support for partner or a biddable suit of your own, you likely want to bid NT but 1 NT doesn't show enough points and two NT would be seen as Jacobi if that is the partnership agreement.
1NT FORCING - Only after 1H or 1S opening bid (1st or 2nd Seat)
Q: The bidding went 1 spade, pass, 1NT, 2 Diamonds ...from fourth seat. Did interference from fourth seat mean that the system was on or off?
Note that if the opening bid is 1C or 1D, there is no change to the NT range and 1NT is NOT forcing. (no 4-card major) 1N=6-10 2N=11-12 3N=13-15
Q: If partner opens 1 s or h and you have a hand with 5 diamonds AKQJlittle and no 3/card support for partner. 10 pts but agreed to 2/1. Can you bid anything? Actually 11 pts counting length.
