LEBENSOHL BRIDGE CONVENTION PDF

If you did, ask yourself how partner is ever supposed to judge when to bid on and when to pass Three Diamonds. If partner has a minimum takeout double, say a shape and just HCP, Three Diamonds will surely be the right contract opposite Hand D. That hand with the extra ace still does not want to bid any higher if you hold Hand A, though. Clearly, you need to bid Hand A and Hand D differently.

His hand is already fairly well defined, both in terms of shape and strength, so you are picking the contract. If partner advances with Three Diamonds then you will be able to bid a natural and forcing Three Hearts.

If partner happens to bid hearts over Three Clubs, you can raise to game. If partner bids 3NT then you can Pass, content that the alternative contracts have all been investigated. Here, though, you plan on looking for a slam but, at this point, Five Clubs, Six Clubs and either game or slam in notrumps are all possible contracts. If partner bids 3NT over Three Clubs, you can make a quantitative raise to 4NT, having already shown your five-card suit on the way. Partner should then be well-placed to choose the best game or slam.

If partner bids a red suit, you can continue with a Three Spade cue-bid, asking for a spade stopper for notrumps. If he shows one by bidding 3NT, again you can raise to 4NT.

If he does not, you can still investigate slam in clubs. These sequences cover all ranges of unbalanced hands, from those that just wish to compete the partscore, through those seeking the best game contract, all the way up to hands wanting to investigate slam. This is the type of auction I am referring to: You.
