Bridge TIPS

Botanic Bridge Club is affiliated to CBAI

and abides by the rules.

♣  ♠  

A few reminders when playing bridge:

  • The bidding boxes must be used. It is like a silent auction!

  • After 3 passes the bidding stops and the contract is decided

  • On no account should any of the bids be changed once a bidding card has been placed on the table.

Please do not say "I made a mistake" after making a bid.

  • Leave bidding cards on the table until first card has been played.

REMEMBER you can call the Tournament Director if anyone is not happy with the bidding and the game will be AVERAGED.

  • When the game commences please let declarer concentrate.

  • On no account should declarer touch cards in dummy unless that card is being played.

  • Once a card has been played by any player it cannot be changed.

There are 4 players at the table, each should be able to see bids made and cards played.

WHEN THE GAME IS FINISHED COUNT YOUR CARDS AND PLACE THEM BACK INTO BOARD.

PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THE CARDS OUT AGAIN
