Tip of the Week - New Year's Resolutions for 2017

Notes From A Club Player

#5 New Year’s Resolutions by Dar Webb

 

Let’s face it, New Year’s resolutions can be pretty tiresome. After resolving to eliminate junk food, cut down on drinking, and be nicer to your in-laws, what’s left?  There’s always bridge, and if you are like me, there’s a lot you can improve.  With that in mind, I began asking the players at my club (the wonderful St. Petersburg Bridge Club) what resolutions they would recommend for typical developing club bridge players. There was a surprising amount of agreement from the good players at my club, as to what the average player (for example, me) should work on.  So here goes.  In 2017, I resolve to:

HELP - HELP - HELP

Sometimes North could be discouraged by a bad result and just wants to get the hand over with, so (s)he carelessly enters the wrong contract, wrong direction or wrong score. Maybe he just pressed the wrong key accidentally.  It is now West’s job to verify the correct entry of the score, but because he has done it so many times, the West player doesn’t always read the entire entry. Rather, he is looking for 420 and he sees it, so he automatically presses the “APPROVE” button on the Bridgemate machine. Now we have an incorrect score because it says North South played the hand for 420 when it was really East-West making the 420. This affects the score of all the teams in the event.

 

While I sympathize with the situation, we must be more careful. These machines are great to use and save us a lot of time, but that old saying “Familiarity breeds contempt” is so true. We are getting some scoring errors and would really, really appreciate these errors going away. A little more caution should solve this problem.

 

North, take a few seconds and make sure you enter the score correctly – West, take a few seconds and make sure you read and verify the score correctly. Our directors and players will be very grateful for your help.
