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.

 

 WELCOME ♦

Dunboyne Bridge Club meets on Monday nights at 7.00 pm - play starts at 7.15 p.m. sharp  and finishes at 10.15 p.m. in the old National School in Dunboyne. At least one player from each pair should be seated by 7.10 p.m. to faciliate the Bridgemate Operator.

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.
