PARTNER must respond to
an unopposed demand bid,
regardless of extreme weak
ness. He should respond to a
demand bid that is opposed
by an intervening declaration,
provided he holds assisting val-;
ues of at least three trumps plus
one quick trick, or in case he
has a sound declaration of his
own. He must pass an interven
ing bid in case he does not hold
genuine assisting or shifting
Respond to partner's unopposed
opening bid of three as follows:
1. Assist upon three small trumps
(or A-X. K-X, or QJ) plus one
quick trick. 1 Without a quick
trick support upon four small
trumps (er A-X-X R-X-X or Q-J-X;

The next hand nicely illustrates
why four small trumps often af
ford all the support seeded for a
big hand ta go game, even if It
offers a dubious appearing open
ing bid of three.
Z'a opening bid of 8-Spades
was raised to 4-Spades upon four
small trumps, but Z lost only two
diamond tricks and one trick in
clubs. Z ruffed the third round
of diamonds then led his two top
trumps, dropping all opposing
spades and affording two entries
to dummy with the 9 and 1 of
trumps. Both times entry waa
gained into dummy a heart was
fed and a finesse taken. Luckily
neither opponent held more than
three hearts, so that fire spade
tricks, four heart tricks and one
club trick gave the declarer just
the ten tricks his side had -bid.

hat is: Unless you bid game you
