Namyats Convention

James Frazee June 1, 2018

Namrata is a convention to distinguish strong opening bids.  It shows 7-9 tricks in the hand.  This will help the responder to determine his bid, pass or go to slam.   Either way, there is a possible game and maybe a slam

Opening                             Meaning

4 Clubs                                7+ strong Hearts and 8-9 tricks

4 Diamonds                         7+ strong Spades and 8-9 tricks

4 Hearts                               7+ hearts and 7-8 tricks.  Weaker than the 4 Cubs opening

4 Spades                              7+ Spades and 7-8 tricks. Weaker than the 4 Diamond opening

With a supporting hand, the a slam is possible.
