Hi Scott,
This is what happens if you choose to play the Collante convention : N E S 1♣ 1♦ X = 4 cards in ♥ (exactly) 1♣ 1♦ 1♥ = 5 cards in ♥ (or 6...) 1♣/♦ 1♥ X = 4 cards in ♠ (exactly) 1♣/♦ 1♥ 1♠ = 5 cards in ♠ (or 6...) *********** Without Collante, doubling the 1♦ overcall is negative, but doesn't indicate specifically 4 cards in ♥, and doubling the 1♥ overcall is negative, but doesn't indicate 4 cards in ♠. Also, without Collante, if South bids 1♥ after the 1♦ overcall, he can have 4 cards only in ♥, and if South bids 1♠ after the 1♥ overcall, he can have 4 cards only in ♠ Collante convention is great when, for example, West raises his partner's overcall to a high level, then Nord can raise his partner's suit with 3 trumps only, being sure South has 5 trumps in his hand, and not 4. Hope this helps (Message édité le the 23th, 07 2007 à 20:36:51) |
