East raises 1 to 2 and West has to decide what to bid. He has just 6 losers, but, with three aces and an extra trump he is worth a try for game. In which suit should he choose to make a game try? He has two weak suits, spades and clubs, each with two losers. Since one of the criteria for a game-try suit is that it should be three cards or longer, West bids 3 . East has just 1 loser in clubs and so he leaps to game even though his hand is weakish, being ace-less. 4 can be made by ruffing two clubs as long as the suit breaks reasonably.
What is the most suitable suit for a game-try? Here are four pointers, the first three of which I have already mentioned:
- The suit should have at least 2 losers (according to the LTC).
- The suit should be three cards or longer.
- The suit should have at most one high card (when partner holds a singleton in the bid suit, he is going to go for game, however weak he is, so you should have a holding that is improved by that).
- With a choice of suits, choose the one which would play better opposite a singleton.
Here are four suits: K-J-3, A-4-3, 7-2, and 8-7-6. Which would be better for a game-try?
Clubs are the best, but hearts are a close second, since both of these suits meet every one of the four criteria above. Diamonds fall foul of Point 2 – they are not long enough – and spades fall foul of Points 3 and 4. To see why the spade suit is a particularly bad choice, consider that partner, holding Q-4-3, would sign off – because, in theory, he cannot help you clear your losers. However, as you can see, his queen would fit very well with your two honours. It is important not to use suits with two honours for this reason.
