Most of us have learned the excellent 2 over 1 bidding system. There are alternatives which, in certain circumstances, are more useful. Sometimes using Jacoby 2NT or Splinter bids will convey more information about your hand to your partner. You will learn how to decide which game forcing tool is the most appropriate for your hand. We will teach you the fundamentals of these two valuable tools, and then take your skills to the next level. These two conventions should be in your bidding arsenal in conjunction with 2 over 1.
