אנו שמחים לפרסם את הכתבה השלישית (מתוך 4) בנושא "הערכת היד – תגובה עם ידיים מאוזנות" (המקור: mrbridge).
הכתבה השלישית עוסקת בנושא "קח את הזמן שלך".
כמשיב עם ידיים חזקות ללא תמיכה בסדרת הפותח, אין צורך שתכריז NT מיד. קח את הזמן שלך: הכרז את הסדרה הראשונה ולאחר מכן יש להכריז NT. כאשר אתה מגיב בשינוי של סדרה, שותפך חייב לבצע עוד הכרזה (forcing), כך תהיה לך הזדמנות להכריז NT בסיבוב הבא ולאפשר לשותפות תיאור מדויק יותר של הידיים.
הכתבה היא בשפת המקור=אנגלית. בהמשך אעלה את התרגום בעברית וכתבות נוספות.

HAND EVALUATION 9
Responding with Balanced Hands
Part 3 of 4
by Bernard Magee
TAKING YOUR TIME
With stronger responding hands without support there is no need to bid no-trumps straight away. Take your time: bid a suit first and then follow with a no-trump bid. When you make a change-of-suit response, your partner must make another bid, so you will have the chance to bid no-trumps on the next round.
A two-over-one response in a new suit often promises a five-card suit but sometimes you can bid a four-card minor so as to keep the auction at a comfortable level – minor suits are not so important and bidding a slightly shorter suit will rarely cause a problem. Note that you should never bid 2 over a 1 opening with just four cards; try not to lie about the majors.
Take a look at the two auctions below:
East is too hasty to bid no-trumps and West has little choice but to pass; 3 would work on this deal but his partner might have his diamonds and clubs swapped, in which case 2NT would be far enough. The point is that West has to guess what East has because he has not been told by his partner.
In Auction 2, East chooses the more informative bid of 2 ; if his partner rebids 2 or 2 he is ready to rebid 2NT, still showing his 11 HCP but having shown his clubs in the meantime. Now West raises to 3 and the partnership have found the best contract: on a 3-2 club break there are likely to be ten tricks, while a 5-3 diamond break will mean that 2NT goes off.
In the next layout, the responding hand is a little stronger:
Once again we can contrast the over-hasty leap to 3NT in Auction 3 with the full exchange of information in Auction 4. Take your time, so you can discuss what the best contract is. In Auction 4, East is very keen on a no-trump contract, so even after his partner supports his clubs he bids 3 to suggest that West bid 3NT if he can cover the diamonds, but West cannot, so he goes back to his first suit. East has heard enough – 3NT will surely go down on a diamond lead, so he bids 5 instead.
This particular opening hand was relatively balanced, but what would West have done if he had held five spades and five clubs? Over an immediate 3NT response there is nowhere to go and he would probably still have to pass. Try to avoid big leaps to 3NT as responder in the same way as you tried to avoid them as opener in the first chapter: leave yourself space to describe your hand.
