Notices

Annual General Meeting of Dunboyne Bridge Club

At the AGM on Monday 29th a motion was put forward asking the Club to support the creation of a Company whose objective is to build a centre focused mainly on bridge, in the broad Dublin 15 area.  At the AGM it was agreed that a vote on this motion should be taken by way of a written ballot of all of the members of the club.  Ballot papers should be returned to the Secretary before 30th June.  If you were not at the AGM and haven't received a ballot paper please contact the Secretary.

Congratulations to our Players of the Year 2018/19!

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.
