2/1 - 8 Lessons (Recordings + Notes)
Two Over One Game Forcing (2/1 GF) is a version of the Standard American bidding system that allows the partnership to create a game forcing auction at the two level. The partnership gains a big advantage from being game-forced at such a low level, because the partnership can now take its time and use all of the available space to find the best place to play game and to explore for slam. Gaining this huge advantage only takes a minor adjustment in the point ranges currently used in Standard American, including needing 13 points to bid your own suit at the two level in response to partner’s opening bid and bidding 1NT in response to partner’s major suit opening with 6-12 points. This course will discuss in more depth these minor adjustments as well as how to take advantage of the space provided by the game forcing auctions.
