Tip of the week

Dummy's Rights

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.

Jeff's Back o'cards Corner
