Notrump Bidding

This set of practice deals is about very basic bidding using only Notrump bids.

The purpose of these deals is to provide practice in deciding whether to stop at a part score, bid game or bid slam. The important point is figuring out how many combined points the partnership has.

Keep in mind:
  open 1NT with 15-17 points and balanced* distribution
  open 2NT with 20-21 points and balanced* distribution
  with 25 or fewer points the partnership should stop at 1NT or 2NT
  with 26 - 32 points the partnership should bid to 3NT
  with 33 - 36 points the partnership should bid to 6NT

  *balanced means either 4-3-3-3, 4-4-3-2 or 5-3-3-2
