Self-Sufficient Suit

Player Recognition page

By Eddie Kantar

There is an easy test to apply for this.

Count the number of cards in your long suit. Add the number of honors in that long suit.

The total is the Suit Quality (SQ).

If the quality is 10 or more, the suit is self-sufficient.

AKQJ54: Length = 6. Honors 4. Total 10. Thus this is a self-sufficient suit.

Likewise, these suits are self-sufficient (SQ is 10 or more): KQJ1032 or AQJ6432 or QJ1098632, and so on.

If such a suit is a major, try to insist on it as trumps.
