Announce or Alert?

We have all got used to 'announcing' the range of partners opening bid of 1NT. You might be less sure about 2NT: Opening bid of 2NT is announced  "20 to 22" or appropriate range. Stayman (4 card) and transfers are announced the same way as after 1NT. 5-card stayman is alerted.  All this is summarised in the EBU Announcing and Alerting table.

We run Cross-IMP pairs on the last Thursday of every month. What is it all about and why do we do it? - See the article on Cross IMP Pairs under FAQ.

Play It Again

Have you ever tried the hand replay facility on this website? Just above every traveller and below the hand diagram there is a 'Play it Again' button. This starts Bridge Solver Online (BSOL) which lets you do this. Full details on using BSOL to "play" a hand in double dummy mode is available in this user guide, which has been written by Rees Mitchell for the website users at Vanderbilt Bridge Club, in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

Results Analysis

You can see detailed results analysis on any Bridgewebs website that displays hand records. You can find out how well you did against double dummy or see cross-imps in teams events. On the Main menu click on Results - Results Bridgewebs and the on the session you played in. Now click on this symbol above the ranking list.
