This lesson is the first in the series to discuss slam bidding. Hazel will introduce her students to Splinter bids. She will show you how having a singleton can help you make a trump suit slam with fewer than the typical 32 high card points.
Hazel will talk about the requirements for splinter bids and how to evaluate your hand opposite them. She will then introduce control bidding, which is a critical element of most slam bidding auctions.
