DIRECTOR'S AWARD

Helen Donoghue and Rolf Mulligan were chosen to receive the Director's Encouragement Award at the ERBA 2017 Championships, and were presented with their certificate and pen by incoming ERBA President, Neville Chapman.

TOPIC OF THE WEEK

DUMMY

Dummy can attempt to stop Declarer committing an infraction, but cannot be the first to call attention to an infraction once committed. For example, if Declarer plays from the wrong hand by either calling for a card from Dummy, or playing incorrectly from their own hand, Dummy must not draw attention to this, as the infraction has occurred.

RECORDING RESULTS

• When you’re on opening lead, your first priority after the auction is to make the opening lead. This should be done before entering the contract into the Bridgemate or writing on your personal scorer.

• The same applies to dummy – after the opening lead is faced, spread your hand before doing anything else.
