Re-Biddable Hands

Before bidding your first bid, be prepared with your next bid.

NT hands do not need to be rebid-able.

Re-biddable hands at the 2 Level:

  • 6-card suit w/o partner support
  • 5-card suit w/ partner support
  • A second 4-card suit w/HCP

Some 2 suited guidelines:

  • Always bid longest suit
  • 5-card suits, equal length, bid highest rank (4-card suits, bid lowest rank)
  • Touching – always bid the higher ranking suit, irregardless of strength
    • Strategy: Partner can send bid around again without raising the level
  • Not-Touching – bid lower suit
    • Strategy: Gives partner a chance to bid with a lower point value.
