I post this to the group in case there are others beside me a Roy who know the game.

Overtrumping your pardsy
If your partner bids 30/31 and by the time the bid comes around to you, you hold a hand that you might have bid 30/31, do you overtrump expecting to win a few rounds with your trumps and the hope pards can win your slough and run out?

Same deal, but pardsy bids 34-36 and you hold 4+ of a suit with the double and the six but have a trouble bone or two.

I realize there are a lot other moving parts to the bidding process, but my sense is that you want your team to set the trumps IAAP.

What sez you?
