Local Playing Rules and Bridge Etiquette

Westmanstown is a dynamic club with over 150 members many of whom

joined the club in recent years and many have never read "The Laws of

Duplicate Bridge"  and don't particularly want to. The  most important law

to remember is that Bridge is a game and players are reminded that they

should treat all players including their partners in a civilised

and friendly manner. 

Players are also reminded that your club is run by a committee of volunteers

who are not paid for their services. In the website's  main menu there

is a page "Bridge Etiquette"  outlining many of the rules of bridge in

everyday language  and it is worthwhile to have a browse when you have

a few minutes to spare.   There is also  a page called "Local Playing Rules"

detailing our operational arrangements on the night.

DOUBLES

The meaning of Double – as the name suggest –

is to raise the stakes. If you Double an opposing

contract, you win more Points if they fail, but

you concede more points if they succeed.

When Bridge began over a 100 years ago,

double was limited to those occasions where

you expected the opponents to fail in their bid.

However, it was realised that you would be

most unlikely to be confident enough to double

a low-level suit bid, when partner had not yet spoken.

And that if the opponents happened to have bid,

a suit in which you were very strong, it was far

better not to tip them off: rather to keep quiet and

wait for them to get into deeper trouble.

In 1912 New Yorker Major Charles Patten and

Bryant McCambell independently invented an

alternative meaning for the “Double” –

the “take-out double”. It is believed that this

was the first convention in the game (although it is

now so universal that it is rarely thought of as such).

The take-out double – “partner, please take out my

double into another suit” shows an opening hand or

better with no other convenient bid: 

no suit to overcall, and an inability to bid notrumps.

To learn more on doubling  contact your local Bridge Teacher

or Coach, or get a copy of

Bridge Lessons (Double) by ANDREW ROBSON,

(www.arobson.co.uk) The above extract is from this book.
