2/1 Game Force: Responding 2 in a New Suit – Part 1
This is the crown jewel of the system. 2/1 (read Two-over-One) refers to responder’s first bid of a new suit on the two-level.  In Standard American it shows 11+ points (or a good 10). Now, most of the bridge world plays it as a game-forcing bid, at least 1...

2-Over-1: The Forcing 1NT… Part Two

2-Over-1: The Forcing 1 NT…Part One
