New Zealand Listener - - DIVERSIONS -

You have a sound raise in spades, based on high-card points. To in­di­cate this, you should cue-bid 2D now. If in­stead you bid 2S or 3S, you would be show­ing a pre­emp­tive raise that was based more on shape than points. If part­ner re­bids only 2S, you will have a close de­ci­sion whether to pass or raise to 3S. (Note that some pairs use 2D to show a 3-card raise and 2NT to show a 4-card raise.) Awards: 2D/2NT – 10, 3S – 5, 2S – 3, Re­dou­ble – 2.
