Two suiter

In contract bridge, a two suiter is a hand containing cards mostly from two of the four suits. Normally a hand is considered a two suiter if it contains at least ten cards in two suits, with the shorter suit of the two being at least four or five cards long (depending on partnership agreement or some different classification schemes). The six possible combinations are given the names "major suits" (spades and hearts), "minor suits" (diamonds and clubs), "black suits" (spades and clubs), "red suits" (hearts and diamonds), "pointed suits" (spades and diamonds), and "rounded suits" (hearts and clubs).
