Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Assume that the partnership uses Jacoby Transfers. Here is a bidding sequence: North-1NT, East-Pass, South-? If South has 5 hearts, and would like to transfer to hearts, what would he bid?

Answer: 2 Diamonds

This is one of the most useful and most common bridge conventions. It was designed by Oswald Jacoby, hence its name. It is useful because it allows the player with more strength to play the hand, thus concealing where the strength lies, and making it more difficult for the defenders to develop a successful line of play.

There are transfers to all four suits, but the major suit transfers are the most common. Thank you Oswald!
2. Here is a bidding sequence: North-1 NT, East-Pass, South-2 Clubs, West-Pass. What should North bid, if he wants to deny a four card major? Assume that the partnership uses Stayman.

Answer: 2 Diamonds

This is another very popular bridge convention. Its designer is a man named George Rapée. George Rapée's partner Samuel Stayman wrote about it and popularized it, hence the Stayman name became attached.
3. Here's another bidding sequence: North-1NT, East-Pass, South-4NT, West-Pass. South's bid of 4NT is known as what kind of bid?

Answer: Quantitative

This bid tells the opener that if they have the top end of an NT opener, then bid 6NT. The reason it is not ace-asking is because the 4NT bid was over NT, therefore it became a quantitative bid. If South wanted to have asked for aces, he would have bid 4 Clubs (Gerber) over his partner's opening 1NT bid. Happy Slamming!
4. South opens 2 diamonds. How many diamonds should he hold in his hand, if he plays with weak 2's?

Answer: 6+

The player should have about 5-11 points, including at least one honour in the bid suit, and an outside ace is welcome, if not a necessity. This kind of bid is called preemptive. It helps to shut out the opposing team, who may have reasonable points, by starting the bidding at a higher level. How disruptive!
5. Assume that the partnership uses the Drury convention. Here is a bidding sequence: North-Pass, East-Pass, South-1 Spade, West-Pass, North-?. What should North bid here if he has 3 card support and 10-11 HCP points?

Answer: 2 Clubs

This is a popular convention with intermediate/advanced players. It was designed by Mr. Douglas Drury. This convention allows the partnership to have less confusion in their quest for finding game in the opener's suit. It is useful because if opener opened light, then he can bid 2 spades and the partnership can make their partial.

But if it was a normal or even strong opening, then he can comfortably bid 4 spades and be content in game.
6. In Standard American Yellow Card, the 1NT response bid is known as what kind of bid?

Answer: Non-forcing

While the bid isn't forcing in Standard American Yellow Card, other systems make the bid forcing, meaning that the opener must bid again. This can be useful in describing your hand further and possibly landing yourself in a more suitable contract. But it can also lead to difficult situations when you start getting to higher levels, and dont have a proper fit or sufficient points to make the contract. Now you can't argue that you were forced to muck up the hand!
7. What does UDCA stand for?

Answer: Upside Down Count and Attitude

With this carding agreement, the standard count and signals are reversed. Now a low card is encouraging and a high card is discouraging. Also, when signalling, high-lowing shows an odd count, and low-highing shows an even count. There are lots of other carding agreements, such as Odd-Even, Lavinthal and others. UDCA is more commonly used by players who are more experienced or advanced.
8. Which of the following responses to a 1NT opening would be known as a "shut-out" bid?

Answer: 4 Spades

A shut-out bid is one which ends the auction right there, and is an instruction for partner to pass. Once a shut-out bid has been made, you would be wise to pass, or you risk having to find a new partner!
9. Here is a bidding sequence: North-1NT, East-Double, South-?. Which of the following conventions could still be "on", and thus available for south to bid?

Answer: Both Stayman and Jacoby Transfer

This should be discussed with your partner to make sure that you are on the same page. If an opponent doubles your partner's opening bid, then all conventions can be "on".
10. Here is a bidding sequence: North-1 Diamond, East-Pass, South-Pass, West-Double, North-Pass, East-Pass, South-Redouble. How many of the unbid suits is South saying he can support?

Answer: at least two

This is known as an SOS redouble. Partner redoubles to say that he can support at least two of the unbid suits. This is useful if the partnership does not want to play doubled in the opening suit (because the responder has very few cards in it). Responder feels that they can find a more suitable contract by telling his partner to bid something else, with a high likelihood of finding a fit.
