Standard American Lesson 13
NoTrumps Rebids

Balanced hands are the easiest hands to bid. With 15-17 HCP and a balanced hand, you can open 1NT which describes your hand in just one bid. With 13-14 HCP or 18-19 HCP, it will take you two bids to show your hand. Start by bidding your longest suit. If your partner changes suit, then you rebid notrumps at different levels to show your strength accurately.
