When you're making a limit bid you bid as high as you can You don't need to save bidding space now because you're pretty sure you know if you're going to play in a suit contract or notrumps. Now's the time to describe your strength.
- With a weak hand that will need more help from partner to make game you can raise partner's suit to the 2 level or bid 1NT. About 6-9 points
- If you're close to game bid 2NT or raise partner's suit to the 3 level. About 10-12 points
- If you have enough to bid game or slam then bid it!
