Learn The Meaning of The Card You Sent
These flowers are for you. They are for all your openings throughout your life (graduating, wedding, championships, etc..)
If, one day, you show up in the World Bridge Championship, cut a flower from the above picture and paste it to Bridge7.com. I can feel its pleasure anywhere: either down here, or up above..
1. Opening of an event
You can get information about the opening
events in the web site of World Bridge Federation: http://www.worldbridge.org.
|Send the highest of two cards for suit contracts. Never send a card from a doubleton for notrump openings (You can send if your partner asked for it).|
|Send the lowest of tripleton suit for all kinds of openings..|
|Send the highest card of a complete sequence for all kinds of openings..|
|Send the highest of inside sequence for all kinds of openings..|
|Send the highest of touching high cards for suit contracts. Fourth best card in notrump contracts..|
|You can send fourth best card in any type of opening.|
Don't worry if you are confused. What you see there is
nothing but the reflection of my own confusion. The card depends
on your partner's knowledge of the meaning of ace and king.. You can stick on
the rule of touching high cards: Lead the ace..
Note: Top players accept that: Ace asks attidude signaling, King asks count signalling (look at signalling in bridge at Section 9-Playing.)
The Meanings of Opening Cards
Sending the singleton trump: Partner, I don't want you to make a trick with your trumps..
Sending a card from declarer's first suit: Partner, I want to see you into trouble.
Sending an ace in a trump contract: Partner, I don't want to kill declarer's king..
