Bidding and play

Many of us have been playing bridge for some time. So why does it seem that we keep making the same mistakes at times ?? (Or, am only speaking for myself ??)

 Vu-Bridge is a fine website where you can practice your bidding and play to your hearts content. There is no software to download and there is no subscription fee.

So, whether you are a beginner or an advanced player there is always room for futher development of the bridge skills.

Seven Shuffles

 

How many shuffles does it take to randomize a deck of cards and provide better playing hands ?

It has been proved mathematically that seven riffle shuffles (whereby the pack of cards is cut (split) into two halves and then interleaving the two halves of the pack) randomises the cards so that a greater variation of hands will be available for each player.

The overhand shuffle is a really bad way to mix cards: it takes about 2500 overhand shuffles to randomize a deck of 52 cards!

Below is video clip to demonstrate how to riffle shuffle........

Duplicate Bridge conventions

 

This club bases its rules on the Laws of Duplicate Bridge (ACOL) as laid out by the E.B.U. with some minor adjustments. In the main, it follows the Simplified Rules of Duplicate Bridge as defined in the “Yellow Book”.  Any unusual convention should be alerted. Non-ACOL should also  be alerted and described on a convention card for all to read.

The Rules of bridge have been updated from the beginning of August 2017.
