Welcome to Dunboyne Bridge Club
COVID 19: Immediate Suspension of Bridge

Due to the ongoing situation with respect to the threat of Covid-19 and following the example of both the CBAI and MLR, the Committee has decided to immediately suspend bridge in Dunboyne Bridge Club. 

The matter will be kept under review by the Committee and the decision to suspend, though regrettable, is being made in the long term best interests of the health and safety of our members.

 

Online Bridge - Instructions for registering to play

You must register to play in the competition on BBO on the day of the competition.  The competition should be available for you to register in from 2 hours before the start time (i.e. about 5.30pm for a 7.30pm start).  To faciliate the TD in setting up the competition we ask members to register by 7pm. You register to play by following these steps:

1.      Logon to BBO (Your partner must also be logged in.)

2.      Click on "Competitive” (Your partner should also click on this)

3.      Click on "All Tournaments" 

 4.      Search for the competition: ID CBAI125517 

5.      Click on the competition.  You will be asked for your partner's BBO username. 

6.       An invitation will be sent to your partner via BBO and your partner should accept the invitation 

7.  At least 2 minutes before the competition is due to start you and your partner must be logged into BBO in the “competitive” area.  (BBO will not recognise you as logged in if you are in the "casual" club or playing solitaire).

8.  The competition is set up so it will not begin until all those who registered to play are online.

Charity Night- Thank You

Thanks to all who came along to the Charity Night on October 14th.  It was a very enjoyable evening and with your support, €1,385 was raised on the night for the President’s chosen charity Suicide Awareness Dublin 15. The funds raised will help make a difference to this very worthwhile charity. Thanks again to all who helped make the night a great success.

 

Do's and Dont's

 

 

The following was issued by the Mid-Leinster Region of the CBAI.

Do’s and Don’ts at Bridge

  1. A player may not correct partner’s mistaken explanation of a bid or signal.
  2. If partner hesitates before calling, a player must show that the action now chosen could not have been influenced by the hesitation.
  3. Your opponents are entitled to know of any partnership agreement you may have.
  4. A player may only ask for an explanation when it is their turn to call.
  5. Lead face down, but turn the card over before dummy is shown.
  6. Check your tricks.  Agree score.  Have contract and result entered before spoiling your won/lost cards.
  7. Do not accept the decision of opponents if a ruling is required.  The T.D. is responsible for all rulings.
  8. Players have a duty to ascertain how opponents communicate:
    Basic system – Acol or Precision or . . .
    Variations – strength of NT, 4 or 5 card majors, etc.
    Other – discards, leads, signals, etc.
  9. Bids above 3NT should not be alerted unless they occur on the first round of bidding.
  10. Defenders may ask one another about possible revokes.
