To open a 4-card major, the suit should contain at least 4 points. If not, you are permitted to open 1♣ with a 3-card club suit. (B) 4-CARD SUITS—MODERN STANDARD This is exactly the same as above except when it comes to (3), opening with no 5-card or longer suit: (3) With two or three 4-card suits, open the cheapest 4-card suit. ” Five-card suits are bid “downthe- line” (higher suit first) and 4-card suits are bid “up-the-line” (cheapest first). Longest first; 5-5 or 6-6: higher first; 4-carders: up-the-line.
A 7 3 2 ♥ 6 ♦ A Q J 9 5 ♣ K 8 3 You opened 1♦. Over 1♥, rebid 1♠ and not 2♦. Show a major rather than rebid a longer minor. Over 1♠, you are worth 17 points (via the singleton) and so you should jump-raise to 3♠.

However, responder is not obliged to pass if opener’s rebid is unsuitable, but responder with a weak hand must not make a strong rebid.

They show about 6-9 high card points (could even be less), excellent trump support (more than the minimum needed for a raise), and unbalanced shape (must have a singleton or a void). ” They are called “shut-out” because their function is to shut the next player out of the bidding. At the same time they serve as a warning to your partner not to expect too much in high cards if your partner has notions about a slam.
