Bidding System for Newbies (Discussion)
I dislike jumping to 60+ in front of partner *regularly*...but, yes, there's definitely times when it's warranted, and it points out a core truth: it cannot be optimal to automatically show your meld regardless of all other aspects of your hand, outside of meld.

Now, similarly: it cannot be optimal to conceal the meld with every decent playing hand. BUT: if I start with a strength bid (with a moderate hand), I can switch gears and *give meld* when partner responds with a strength bid, in *1* round. Not always, no; the bidding can sky past the point where I can show. But fairly often...and almost all the time against MFA types. Smile
