Can someone confirm that the following 1NT defence is legitimate. Trash Trash is played over opponents' notrump openings. After 1NT: dbl - for penalty 2C - transfer to diamonds, or 10 cards in hearts and spades 2D - transfer to hearts, or 10 cards in spades and clubs 2H - transfer to spades, or 10 cards in clubs and diamonds 2NT - transfer to clubs, or 10 cards in diamonds and hearts After advancer (the overcaller's partner) accepts the transfer: pass - weak one-suited hand next suit - weak two-suited hand raise - invitational one-suited hand jump shift - invitational two-suited hand (Note: no hand should be too weak; this is an overcall after all!) 2S - 10 cards in clubs and hearts, or 10 cards in diamonds and spades Advancer bids 2NT to find out which hand; with the round suits (clubs and hearts) you will rebid 3C. With the pointy suits (diamonds and spades) you will rebid 3D. With very strong hands you can make the Trash bid one level higher.

  • Can someone confirm that the following 1NT defence is legitimate.

    Trash
    Trash is played over opponents' notrump openings. After 1NT:

    dbl - for penalty

    2C - transfer to diamonds, or 10 cards in hearts and spades
    2D - transfer to hearts, or 10 cards in spades and clubs
    2H - transfer to spades, or 10 cards in clubs and diamonds
    2NT - transfer to clubs, or 10 cards in diamonds and hearts

    After advancer (the overcaller's partner) accepts the transfer:
    pass - weak one-suited hand
    next suit - weak two-suited hand
    raise - invitational one-suited hand
    jump shift - invitational two-suited hand
    (Note: no hand should be too weak; this is an overcall after all!)

    2S - 10 cards in clubs and hearts, or 10 cards in diamonds and spades

    Advancer bids 2NT to find out which hand; with the round suits (clubs and hearts) you will rebid 3C. With the pointy suits (diamonds and spades) you will rebid 3D.

    With very strong hands you can make the Trash bid one level higher.
