Meckwell Over 1NT 

Meckwell is a method for intervening against an opposing 1NT opening bid. It features the following calls:

  • Double – shows a single minor or both majors; advancer bids 2♣, after which intervenor corrects to his actual suit if a minor, or hearts if holding both majors
  • 2♣, 2; – shows the bid suit and a major
  • 2, 2♠; – shows the bid suit
  • 2NT – shows the minors

The convention is named based on the common sobriquet for the partnership of Jeff Meckstroth and Eric Rodwell, who popularized it.
