THE DUTIES OF A DEDICATED DUMMY.

Doing Dummy Proud

The Duties of a Dedicated Dummy by NIgel Block.

"Most players believe that being Dummy is rather boring and try to avoid the role as the main duty is to place played cards in the direction of NS or EW depending on who won the trick. However the number of rights and constraints thrust upon you may surprise you. Here are just some of them.

As Dummy you can:

1. Warn any of the players that a quitted card is in the wrong direction, but only if you spot the lapse before the next trick is started.

2. Attempt to prevent Declarer leading from the wrong hand by saying something like, ‘I think you are in Dummy’. However you must not point out the error once a card has been played.

3. Try to prevent a Defender from leading out of turn. Even so you must remain silent once the card has been played.

4. Attempt to warn Declarer of a possible revoke by for example asking, ‘No more spades, partner?’

But what about the limitations placed on Dummy?  Once again here are just a few of them.  During the play of the hand, as Dummy you are not allowed to:

5. Comment on any irregularity committed by any player.

6. Study an opponent’s system card.

7. Say how many tricks have been won or lost.

8. Call the TD on your own initiative.

9. Hover over a card or suit in dummy in anticipation of declarer’s next play.

At the end of the play of the hand as Dummy you may:

10. Draw attention to a perceived irregularity.

Condition 6 is often broken at club level. The danger here is that you may unintentionally be giving unauthorised information (UI) to your partner.

Condition 9 is quite important.  At one time or another, I suspect most of us have committed this offence in an attempt to save time. However it is prohibited under the laws. The TD can award an adjusted score if he/she believes that Dummy was indicating a possible line of play to Declarer.

Technically a procedural penalty against your side is a possibility for disregarding any of the rules, but in club competition the TD would probably just point out your error and take no further action. 

Note: The list above is not exhaustive; full details can be found in Sections 42-43 of the 2017 laws."

  PETER HUMMEL
PETER HUMMEL
It was with great sadness that we learned that Peter passed away last week. We have played bridge with Peter and June in North Norfolk for over thirty years and many of you will remember him fondly for looking after us so well on our Coventry Hilton House Parties. Peter always enjoyed his bridge either playing, directing or attending our social lunches at the Holiday Inn. He will be greatly missed and our thoughts are with June and the family at this very sad time.

  2009 CATHY & DAVID CHARITY WALK
  • Bure Valley Train
  • Finish line
  • Cathy David start of walk
  • Just a reminder

On Saturday 4th April, David & Cathy completed the 9 mile Bure Valley Walk, alongside the narrow-gauge railway line.  This runs between Wroxham and Aylsham.  The walk organised by the Bure Valley Rotary Club, supported by other Rotary Clubs in the area, helped raise funds for the McMillan Nurses Cancer Charity.  David & Cathy travelled by train from Wroxham to Aylsham and walked the route in the opposite direction, completing the task in 3 hours, managing to raise just over £100 in sponsorship towards the funds.  The route was well marshalled by Rotary members and friends providing water and comfort breaks at various stations.  The event was well supported and a well earned round of refreshments was provided at the Wroxham Hotel for all participants at the end of the walk.  Very big thanks to all the members of this club who sponsored us.   Cathy & David
