DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO-SUITER BIDS WEST NORTH EAST
Q J 10 9 8 A5 643
By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist QJ6 542 10 9 7
K7 Q J 10 9 86532
Zig Ziglar, an author and motivational speaker who died in 2012, said, “It’s not what Q J 10 8643 97
you’ve got, it’s what you use that makes a difference.”
We have been looking at the Michaels Cue-Bid and the Unusual No-Trump. There is K72
one important difference between them. If the dealer opens the bidding with one of a AK83
suit, and two passes follow, in the fourth position, the Michaels Cue-Bid still applies, A4
but the Unusual No-Trump does not. A balancing two-no-trump overcall is natural, AK52
in principle showing a hand worth a normal two-no-trump opening with at least one
stopper in the opener’s suit. (You might also have only 18 or 19 points when you have Dealer: West; Vunerable: Both
a respectable six-card minor to compensate for the shortfall.)
You can see this bid in action in today’s deal. When one spade comes around, South
might double, but if North advances with two diamonds, South will have no good call. SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
A 4-4 heart fit is unlikely to be lost after South jumps to two no-trump, because North ?? 1 Spades Pass Pass
can use Stayman, assuming he has sufficient points for game. Note also that bidding LEAD:
aggressively is a good idea, because South knows where (almost) all of the missing Queen Spades
honor cards lie.
How should South play in three no-trump after West leads the spade queen?
Declarer has seven top tricks: two spades, two hearts, one diamond and two clubs.
The simplest line is to win the first trick with his spade king, cash the diamond ace,
and lead another diamond to establish two more diamond winners while dummy
retains the spade ace as an entry.
