Basic bidding Notrump raises Major suit raises
This set of practice deals focuses on basic bidding situations. There are
no conventions used except for one deal which uses Blackwood. Even that is optional.
The deals are designed with the beginning player in mind, or perhaps those who feel the need
to refresh themselves on the fundamentals of bidding.
The purpose of these deals is to provide practice in finding a fit and deciding whether
to stop at a part score, bid game or bid slam.
Keep in mind:
a combined 8-card trump fit is desired to play in a suit
it takes 26 points to make game in Notrump or a Major suit
it takes 33 points to make small slam
