Rubber Bridge Scoring

RUBBER BRIDGE SCORING

 

  1. Each table has 2 packs of cards (different colours). Players cut for the first deal and the winner picks the colour of the pack to be dealt. The cards are shuffled by the player to the dealer’s left and then cut by the player to the dealer’s right. The dealer then deals and the dealer’s partner, meanwhile, shuffles the other pack and places it to their right hand side.

 

  1. Bidding and play are similar (although scoring affects how high the bidding needs to go and only simple systems are usually allowed) but, in Rubber Bridge, the Declarer plays both their hand and Dummy’s hand and all four players play their cards into a pile in front of Declarer. Whoever wins the round then gather all 4 cards in front of them as 1 trick.

 

  1. A game is won by the first pair to score 100 or more points for successful contracts ‘below the line’. This may take several deals.

 

  1. The score is kept of a sheet divided into two columns headed ‘WE’ and ‘THEY’ with a horizontal line across the page half way down. Scores for successful contracts are entered ‘below the line’ and count towards winning a game. Other scores, such as overtrick bonus’, undertrick penalties etc. are entered ‘above the line’ and do not count towards winning the game but do count towards the final score.

 

  1. Vulnerability is very important in Rubber Bridge. A pair who have already won a game are said to be vulnerable and are subject to higher bonuses and penalties as a result.

The first side to score 100 points below the line, in one or more hands, wins a GAME. When a game is won, both sides start without trick score toward the next game. First side to win two games wins the RUBBER POINTS.

 

In addition, the declarer’s side scores 50 points above the line “for the insult” if they succeed in making a doubled contract – 100 points for making a redoubled contract!
