Sarum Bridge Club aims to provide competitive but friendly duplicate bridge in pleasant surroundings.  It is affiliated to the English Bridge Union and Wiltshire Contract Bridge Association.

The Club meets each Monday and Wednesday evening in the Reading Room, Stratford Sub Castle, Salisbury.  It is nearly opposite St Lawrence Church.  On the 2nd week of each month the club meets on Thursday instead of Wednesday.  

Social duplicate bridge takes place on Thursday afternoons at 1515hrs.

Hands are duplicated and Master Points awarded.

New Members and Visitors are always welcome.  The club has a stewarding system most evenings (please check ckub programme) so single players are very welcome.

Unauthorised Information - Making a ruling at the end of the hand

To adjust a score for Unauthorised Information (UI) the Director needs to believe that:

  1. The player was in receipt of unauthorised information from his partner.
  2. The action he took subsequently was suggested by the unauthorised information.  Sometimes in a complicated auction partner hesitates, but it by no means obvious what his problem was, in that there is no USEFUL UI to his partner.  The Director cannot allow opponents to argue that any successful action he takes is automatically taken away from him.  The most common scenarios that would give rise to useful UI after a hesitation are:
  1. If partner hesitates and then passes, there is the implication that he would welcome a bid or double from you.
  2. If partner hesitates and then doubles, he usually would not be unhappy if you removed the double.
  3. If partner hesitates and then signs off, he would not be unhappy if you bid on.
  1. There was no logical alternative to the action taken.  For the class of player, his methods and his possible alternative actions this was so clear cut as to be “no contest”.

If the Director decides to adjust the score for UI then law 12C1 states it should be an assigned adjusted score.  This will be a real contract like 4 H making, not an artificial score like 60/40%.
