Responders rebid

root page

Beginner and above

Partner opened with an artificial strong bid

Your next action will depend primarily on two things:-

whether partner’s hand is balanced or unbalanced;


whether the auction is non-forcing, forcing, or game-forcing.

There will also be specific continuations if partner’s rebid was also artificial such as a Kokish 2 or 3NT.

The continuations are considered separately in the categories:-

partner opened with a one-round force

partner opened with a two-round force

partner opened with a game-forcing bid
