The Two Bid In Diamonds Or Clubs

The original bid of two in either Diamonds or Clubs with the score at

love is a totally different character of declaration from two Hearts or

two Royals. The Dealer does not with this declaration say, "Let me stay

in and make game," but he does say, "I have a long suit (at least five

cards) headed by Ace, King, Queen, with no considerable support on the

side. (If I had another Ace, I would bid No-trump.) Now you know my

exact hand."

When there is a score which places Diamonds or Clubs within four tricks

of game, the original bid of two or more in either suit is of exactly

the same significance as a similar call of Royals or Hearts, with the

score at love.
