Bid four spades now, and answer questions later. Dear Mr. Wolff: At duplicate, both sides vulnerable, I open one spade and LHO doubles.

Partner passes and RHO bids two diamonds. Should I bid two hearts with A A-J-10-7-5, A-K-J-8, 10-6-4? Hates to Pass, Whiteville, N.C. ANSWER: Bidding two hearts is a very dangerous action. Your LHO's takeout double ON BRIDGE promised length and strength in hearts, and partner is unlikely to have heart support. Since he didn't bid two spades over the takeout double, I suggest a prudent pass.

Dear Mr. Wolff: At duplicate, how would you open the bidding with this hand? Iheld 9-7-3, A-6, J-10-5-2, A-K-J-3, and the opponents were vulnerable. Rank or Texture? Roanoke, Va. ANSWER: Many would open one club because of the solidity of that suit compared with the anemic texture of the dia- monds. However, in a competitive auction, a one-diamond opening may leave you better placed for a convenient rebid.

For example, if LHO overcalls one spade and partner makes a negative double, what convenient bid would you have if RHO raises to two spades? If you open one diamond, you might compete with three clubs. If you open one club, it might be too dangerous to introduce the diamond suit. Dear Mr. Wolff: I open one diamond with 2, J-9-6, A-Q-8-3, 4 K-Q- 10-9, and partner responds one heart. If my RHO bids one spade, how many hearts am I worth? Promoted Values, Rocklin, Calif.

ANSWER: A jump to four hearts would be an overbid, and a timid raise to two hearts would be a gross underbid. A jump to three hearts seems just about right. It promises four trumps and about 15-18 support points. Send bridge questions to The Aces, Box 12363, Dallas TX 75225, with a self-addressed, stamped envelope for reply..
