Bridge in the Community

Our club has been contacted by the Chartwell Bayview Retirement Residence, 435 Dundas Street West.  They have 6 women who would like to play bridge (they’re thinking Wednesday/Saturday afternoons but that’s flexible) and need a few more people to fill tables.  If you're interested in joining this activity contact Lynda Tarle for details.

Club Membership


Starting Thursday, January 12, we will be pleased to collect a club membership fee of $15.00.  Thank you.

The laws of duplicate bridge
The laws of duplicate bridge

[The director has the responsibility for rectifying irregularities and redressing damage.  But it is important for players to have at least a passing knowledge of the laws applying to the most common irregularities.  For the next couple of months, I will summarize for you some of those most common irregularities.]

The Revoke

The rules have changed in recent years. It used to be that if a player revoked, the opponents were generously rewarded.  Here are the basic facts you should know about the revoke (also called a "renege").

Definition - Failure to follow suit when you could have.

When is a revoke established? - When the offending side plays to the next trick.

An unestablished revoke – Must be corrected.  In the case of declarer’s revoke, the card is returned to his/her hand without penalty.  In the case of a defender, the revoke card becomes a major penalty card. (This will be explained in a later laws segment.)

Rectification after an established revoke

   0 tricks – if the offenders won no tricks from the revoke trick on

   1 trick – if the offending side won a trick from the revoke trick on

   2 tricks – if the revoking player won the revoke trick and the revoking side won another later trick

Adequate compensation – If the director deems that the non-offending side was insufficiently compensated, an adjusted score can be assigned.  This is rare and would occur only if the non-offending side were unable to score a series of tricks that rightfully belonged to them had the revoke not occurred.

The following conditions will govern our play


1. You must have been vaccinated to play.

2. Masks are optional but must be worn if you are asked to do so by someone at the table.  Please bring a mask with you.

3. Bring your own drinks/snacks. We are allowed to use the fridge.

4. Use hand sanitizers regularly. They will be available at the Masonic Hall.

5. We all practice good hygiene and take measures to protect our health and the health of others.  That means if you are sick, stay home.
