Bid a 6-card minor ahead of a 5-card major. (2) With two 5-card suits or two 6-card suits, open the higher-ranking. (3) With two or three 4-card suits, open the 4-card suit below your shortage. Locate your shortest suit (singleton or doubleton) and go down in rank and bid the first 4-card suit below your shortest suit. Longest first; 5-5/6-6: higher first; 4-carders: below-the-shortage. Biddable Suits and the Convenient Club Any 5-card or longer suit may be opened. Any 4-card minor may be opened.

If unable to raise opener and unable to bid a suit at the 1-level, respond 1NT as your last resort. Because of the importance of the rule requiring 10+ points for a new suit at the 2-level, the 1NT response need not be balanced. With 10 HCP and a 4-3-3-3 pattern, prefer a 1NT response to a 2-level change of suit. RESOLVING A CHOICE OF RESPONSE What happens when your hand fits two or more responses? Perhaps you are able to support your partner but you also have a suit of your own? Perhaps you could raise opener, bid your own suit, or respond 1NT?
