When and where to have a game of Bridge

Belmont Bridge Club plays Duplicate Bridge each Monday at Belmont Golf Club, Pacific Highway, Marks Point.  Play is scheduled for 9.15am for a 9.30am start.  Partners are always available on days that are not Red Point events or are part of a competition e.g. Autumn Pairs.

LEAD OUT OF TURN

I. You Accept the Lead:

a. You may choose to become dummy and let your partner play the hand (Law 54A). You put your hand down on the table and partner takes over. Normal play proceeds.

b. You may choose to remain declarer (Law 54B). Partner immediately puts his or her cards down and then you play a card from your hand.

Note: if your partner had already begun laying out her/his hand as dummy (so that you could have seen one or more of her/his cards), then you must accept the lead (Law 54C).

II. You Refuse to Accept the Lead:

c. You may choose to require your LHO to lead the same suit that his/her partner originally tried to lead. If you choose this option, then the card originally played by your right-hand opponent (RHO) is no longer a penalty card and is picked up by RHO and replaced in her/his hand.

d. You may choose to prohibit your LHO from leading the same suit that his/her partner originally tried to lead. If you choose this option, then the card originally played by your RHO is no longer a penalty card and is picked up by RHO and replaced in her/his hand.

e. You may choose not to require or prohibit your LHO from leading the same suit that his/her partner originally tried to lead; this means LHO is now free to lead whatever s/he chooses, including the suit in question. If you choose this option, then the card originally played by your RHO remains a major penalty card.

Note: if you refuse to accept the lead, then as long as your RHO still has a major penalty card on the table, each time that your LHO is on lead you may choose from among options c, d, and e.

Moral of the story: Always place your opening leads face down on the table
