Declarer's partner must only play a card from the dummy at the request of the declarer and must not indicate or suggest in any way which card or suit declarer should play. To do so is against the laws (Law 45.) and is most unethical. However, dummy can prevent declarer from leading from the wrong hand and check with declarer that he/she is out of a suit. Dummy may also tell declarer that he has one or more of his quitted tricks facing the wrong way.
Dummy must not call the director.

At the New Melville you will receive a warm welcome whether you are a visitor, prospective member or student of the game. Our friendly club caters for players of all standards from absolute beginner to Grand Master by offering a variety of bridge sessions and classes throughout the week.
At five of these sessions you can turn up without a partner and be guaranteed a game as we have standby players available.
Our club has one of the best playing facilities in Scotland with a large 28 table playing room, two dedicated match rooms and a teaching suite with a digital projector. The club also benefits from a modern social area where members can relax with a hot drink during mid-session breaks or enjoy a glass of wine at the end of an evening.
The New Melville is a thriving successful club with over 360 members and more than 100 students learning the game in our highly thought of Bridge Academy. All full members of the club are issued with a swipe card that they can use to pay for bridge and refreshments. The club is conveniently located near Edinburgh Zoo with a bus stop just outside where six different services can be used to and from town. We also have a small car park and there is free on-street parking very close by.
Full details about our bridge sessions and starting times can be found in 'Information About the Club' from the left hand menu.
