TOPIC OF THE WEEK

Dummy should not play a card until Declarer has called for it. This applies even when the card to play is obvious, for example, when Dummy has a singleton in the suit led.

Dummy should only touch the cards when playing a card nominated by Declarer, or to reorganise them. Dummy should not move the cards to fill a space created by a suit void, as this is disruptive to Declarer and Defenders.

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.
