M J Bridge
A dictionary of conventions, theory, and technical terms
There are many conventional bids in modern bridge.
Some are in common use at all levels of the game -
In this work I include at least one suitable convention for most of the imaginable situations in which a convention might be useful. Some of these conventions are in common use, some are less common, there are one or two rarities and even a couple of my own original ones which you won’t come across anywhere else.
Note that in must cases I have a preference for one of the methods on offer, and that I have also included a number of methods which are in fairly common use but which I do not recommend.
Each convention which follows is discussed in the correct bidding context in the ‘Bidding’ section.
In that section I shall attempt to show how the convention can be incorporated with the other bids available. I shall also indicate the level of expertise at which I consider the convention to be appropriate -
The present pages do no more than list these conventions in alphabetical order and indicate where a fuller treatment is to be found in the main bidding section.
