Menu Vu-Bridge | Play like a Champion!

 "When is TOO MUCH Just Right?" by Marti Ronemus

February only has 28 days because it's so wretched and we can't wait to be done with it. In our ongoing quest to make your life better, we bring you two inspired versions of Hot Chocolate, guaranteed to make you wish February would last forever.
First, how about Salted Dark Hot Chocolate? An Oreo crumb-crusted rim, then dark chocolate whipped cream, chocolate shavings, all topped with caramel drizzle and finishing salt.
Next, we offer Red Velvet Hot Chocolate: Hot chocolate with strawberries, marshmallows and Cadbury chocolate candy dropped in (yes, you read that right!), and then a Red Velvet cupcake floating on the surface. Oh wait! I forgot to mention the marshmallow meringue that's bruleed on top.

I know, I know. You're speechless and drooling, right? Well, we better refocus and turn our attention to our bridge quiz. Maybe we can burn enough calories thinking to earn one of those treats.

Question 1

 5 4
 6 5 4
Q: 1 - South:


 Your choice:
A: 3: After East's natural 3 bid, our Pass marks us with nothing. Now we are free to show our Spade suit. Pard will know we aren't serious but have a long suit to offer. Plus since we can't Pass, we may as well tell a little story.

Question 2

  Your Hand
 Q 10 7 5
 J 7 6
 A 10 9
 A K 5
Q: 2 - South:

 Your choice:
A: 3: This is the perfect time to use our friend, the "Limit Raise Plus Cue Bid." In a competitive auction, ANY raise of Pard's suit shows weakness. This Cuebid shows a fit with Pard, and at least 10 pts. It is forcing and hugely useful.

 K Q
 A 10 9 8 6
Q: 3 - South:

 Your choice:
A: 2: Pard must have five Spades. How do we know? With only four, he would have Doubled. It's perfectly okay to raise with only three pieces. Our 2 shows a minimum opener.

Question 4

 K Q J 7
 Q 10 6
 J 10 9 8
Q: 4 - South:

 Your choice:
A: Double: Could we have doubled at our first opportunity to bid? Some might, but at unfavorable vulnerability we choose not to. In the balancing seat however, we know we won't earn that hot chocolate masterpiece by just sitting around. The points seem to be evenly divided. Let's get some action going.

Q: 5 - South:

 Your choice:
A: 2 No-trump: We don't have anything else to say, do we? We don't have a suit, we have a stopper, and we have 10-12 pts. Now it's Pard's problem.

Let's play a hand now.
