Quick summary

You and your partner should focus on getting to a "game" on every hand possible, so you can get the 400 to 600 points for victory. The penalty for failure is usually small.

  1. Check if your hand is balanced
  2. Find out if you have 25 points between you
  3. Do you have an 8-card match ?

With 25 and balanced, bid NT game.

With 25 and Major fit, bid Major game.

  1. 你们是均衡牌型 还是非均衡牌型;
  2. 你和搭档之间是否有一套匹配的花色来打高花有将定约,无将定约、或者低花有将定约;
  3. 你和搭档之间是否有足够的有将定约成局所需要的将牌张数(成局需要8张将牌);
  4. 你和搭档之间是否有足够的成局点数:无将定约和高花有将定约成局需要至少25点。(低花有将定约则需要28点)。

如果你发现你们是均衡牌型,四个花色中均有止张 ,你们可以打无将定约。 打无将定约的时候,你们两个需要(同时你们也有可能)交流具体的点数。如果你们有25点,那么你们应该叫到局(3无将=3NT)。要清楚25点 ,可以有75%赢局的机率 。(24点大多不够)。


如果你们是非均衡牌型,也因此必须打有将定约的话,25点也是一个很好的提示你们叫到局(高花为将牌的前提下,叫到4阶 即可 )的起始 指导 点。但是要记住,打有将定约计算点数时,牌型是非常重要的。长套牌、缺门 和单张也要被相应加分,除非缺门和单张出现在将牌花色中。对于低花有将定约来说,叫到5阶的局需要28点。
