McKENNEY ON BRIDGE
Use Warren System Cautiously; Be Sure Hand Has Slam
This is the fourth of a series
of six articles on the Warren
slam bidding convention.
* * *
By WM. E. McKENNEY
(America’s Card Authority)
Most slam-bidding conventions
are abused because the average
player tries to make use of them
too often. This is no less true of
the Warren slam method than of
others which, perhaps, do not give
so much information.
The slam signal, four no trump,
should be bid not only because a
player has the required two aces, or
one ace and a void, but also because
he thinks a slam ca.. probably be
made and a contract of five-odd is
In today’s hand, after North bid
diamonds and then showed heart
support, South was quite sure a
small slam would be a good con
tract if North held at least one ace
and the king of his suit, diamonds.
South therefore bid four no trump
to learn North’s high-card strength.
North’s response of five hearts
showed three points. Theoretically
this could be an ace and a king, or
three kings; but South knew it
showed an ace and king because he
had three of the four kings him
The proper final contract still
had to be carefully weighed- South
had never shown his diamond sup
port, and had only a four-card heart
suit; but he was afraid that if
North’s ace were in spades and not
in hearts, and North were the de
clarer at six diamonds, East could
lead a spade through South’s king.
South, therefore, decided the hand
should be played at hearts, and bid
West saved his high spades, hop
ing the lead in that would eventual
ly have to come to him, and opened
a trump. South made an overtrick
by ruffling a low club in dummy be
fore drawing trumps and running
the diamond suit.
NEXT: Avoiding a slam.
