Local Bridge: More Jacoby

  • Posted: Sunday, May 5, 2013 12:01 a.m.

The Jacoby 2 NT bid is one that encourages your pair to go to game. If your partner opens with a major suit and you hold 12-13 points, your response, with no other suit and support in your partner’s suit, is a 2 NT bid.

All things being equal, you should have game going points. If there is interference, a 2NT bid may not be feasible, potentially having a different meaning.

The winners Friday, April 26 were: First, Gloria Bryant/Betsy Bare; second, Harold and Carol Winecoff; third, Pat Featherston/Dick Brisbin; fourth, Ruth Bowles/Marie Pugh; fifth, Margaret and Chuck Rimer.

Tuesday’s Women’s Club game winners were: First, Steve Moore/Dick Brisbin; second, Becky Creekmore/Marie Pugh; third, David and Anna Goff.

This was board No. 7 at Friday’s game. All Vulnerable South Dealer. The Pugh/Bowles pair got the best N/S score bidding 1NS +2. The Rimers made the best E/W score bidding and making 3DE+1.
