Strong Club–the Scanian Way




IV – 1 D


The flexible 1D opening takes care of all hands with 11-16 that don't fit in elsewhere. The normal hands are:

  a) 11-13, balanced with or without a major
  b) 11-13, a 4-card major and a longer minor
  c) 11-16, one or two minors
  d) 11-16, any 4441

2 D At least 5-4 in the majors or a bal GF
  Op makes a natural preference, expecting Re to have 5-4.
  If Re bids again it's a GF, showing:
    2S waiting, basically 5-4 in majors
    2 NT artificial relay, GF, bal, not promising hearts or extra spades.
    After 2S Re may bid 2 NT, waiting, with 54xx
  3 m natural with hearts, length in the bid minor (5431)

  3 NT sounds like 5422

3 m GI with 5-5
3 M distributional GIs (3H shows at least 5-5)

1 D – 1H; 1S

TST is used here also, but now both majors are bid. That changes things a little. Op may have 16 HCP, and there is also the 1  NT response:

1 NT natural and limited. Op rebids:
  2 m a longer minor
  2H 3-card support, not promising extra values
  2S maximum, 4-3 in the majors and a 5+ minor
  2 NT natural
  3 m maximum with a long minor
2C relay to 2 D. Re may pass, or bid:
  2H sound GI
  2S mild GI (too good for a normal single raise)

  (Re's 3S rebid is GF with three spades)
  3 D GF with =1444 (strength for 5 m)
  3 M sound GI
  4 m splinters with 4-card support in spades
2 D transfer to 2H. Except for pass over 2H, the GF bids are:
  2S five hearts and three or more spades, unsuitable for notrump,
  may be SI with four spades
  2 NT waiting with 4 or 5 hearts, balanced or not, but suitable for notrump
  (here, Op hasn't bid 1 NT)
  3 m natural with 5-5 in H + m (Perhaps 5-4 if 2 NT isn't possible)
