FYI

Scoring Differences Between “No Play” Boards, “Average” Boards, and “Passed Out” Boards

·         Sometimes, usually because of slow play, a table isn’t able to play one of their boards. In terms of scoring, a “No Play” board simply erases the board from the computer’s calculations for that pair and the players’ score is unaffected. This is also more or less what happens when a pair misses boards because they have a sit-out.

·         When a pair is assigned a score of “Average” on a board, perhaps because their table has fouled a board, then each pair is awarded half of the matchpoints available for that hand. This will affect their overall score. If, for example, they are doing well with a 60% game to that point, an average board will push down their percentage – and vice versa.

·         When a board is passed out, the players' scores for that board depend on what happens at the other tables. A passed-out board is a zero, falling between the N/S pluses and the E/W pluses. If you are E/W and all the N/S pairs at the other tables go plus, by passing out the board you would get a top and your opponents would get a bottom.

MENTORED GAMES

Next mentored game will be Wednesday March 1st

(with a regular 499er Side Game)

These games allow 10 minutes per board so that the mentors can lay down the hands after play and discuss how the hand should have been bid and played.

Click here to obtain detailed instructions on how to replay hands on your computer

(either using Bridge Baron or World Bridge5)

Instructions on downloading the free World Bridge 5 program are also included.

Please make every effort to be at the club 10 minutes before game time to allow the director time to get the game set up and started on time.

Please remember to turn your cell phones off and keep discussions quiet.

Reminder:  Our club has a scent free policy.

Please respect those who suffer from this sensitivity

 There is a new Find a Partner page on the web site which allows you to let others know the games for which you need a partner

Also, you can see if anyone is looking for a partner from the Calendar page. If someone is looking for a partner for that game you will see (Partner?). Just click it to see who is looking.

WELCOME

 We hope you enjoy the site

Come out to Play and Enjoy Bridge with Us
