Announcing and alerting

It is never easy to remember when a bid made by partner should be alerted or announced. Here is the link to the EBU guidance which members should follow to avoid potential problems and penalties.

Best behaviour at Bridge

Players are reminded that games should always be played in a courteous manner, showing respect and good manners to opponents and partners alike.

The EBU's best-behaviour-at-bridge, recently updated, is very helpful.

Bridge Warehouse

The Bridge Warehouse, formerly the EBU Shop, offers low prices to everyone, all the time, and if a competitor is cheaper then they will do their best to match the price. As all profits are reinvested in the EBU why would you shop anywhere else?

Remember - Christmas is not far away!

Topical Tips - Weak twos - part 3
Topical Tips - Weak twos - part 3

Most of us have guidelines which try (and commonly!) fail to follow for a pre-emptive opening at the three level. The Rule of 500 is probably the best guide. Sometimes we have 7 cards in a major suit but not quite enough to comply with the test. Why not open a Weak Two? You should ensure that your Systems Card is not too rigidly drawn.

As a reminder - the Rule of 500 is that you should be willing to pre-empt if you are assessing a failing by 2 tricks vulnerable or 3 non-vulnerable assuming that you are doubled. These would both result in minus 500.

Previous Topical Tips can be found via the menu on the left.

Laws of Bridge - 2017 update

The Laws of Bridge are updated every 10 years and the 2017 revision came into force on 1st August. There are two major changes, concerning claims / concessions and the concept of "comparable calls".

Tim Howard has written a review of all the significant changes which all players should read - click here. His 9-part guide to the Laws has been updated to reflct the changes and can be found under the Members Only section of the website.
