THE ENCOURAGING TAKE-OUT

  • In the following auction, the 2H bid is encouraging and a mild probe for game,
  • NOT an attempted rescue. Opener is showing a five-card heart suit, something
  • useful in diamonds and probably a decent weak no-trump. Opener can't have
  • anything he wanted to say too desperately or else he'd have said it
  • immediately over 2C instead of passing.
