Use the Bridge Tools on this site check your results and compare  see which pair has your number.

If you are interested in improving your game, even just a little bit spend a few minutes after a game, go on the website and look at your results.  Look at the hands that appear normal where you scored poorly to figure out what went wrong.  Do you know that most bad scores are from slipping just one trick, either on play or on defense?   If you can’t find your error, save the hand and ask someone to help you

Better Bridge Tip


Audrey Grant's Better Bridge

Hi
 
All the best for the New Year.
 
It's rewarding when a bridge robot acts the way you would expect an accomplished partner to behave. Where are robots like that? There's good news! They're here, and for a long time have been receiving five-star ratings.
 
This year, put subscribing to the Interactive Daily Bridge Column on your To Do List. I know you’ll be happy you did.

Bridge Quiz - Preempts and the LAW!

We're probably all familiar with preemptive opening bids. Simply put, a weak 2, 2, or 2♠ bid shows a hand with a good six-card suit, and not enough to open the bidding. It shows a hand that's valued not with point count, but with the number of playing tricks available as declarer.
 
Preemptive three bids show a good seven-card suit and six playing tricks as declarer. A preemptive bid at the four level shows a good eight-card suit and seven playing tricks. The instructions for making an opening preempt are fairly clear.
 
What's usually missing is how to respond to partner's preemptive opening bid. Fortunately, we've got a four-word slogan:
 
Count Tricks, Then Trumps.
 
After partner makes a preemptive opening, chant this slogan while tapping the table, and then repeat several times.
 
Count Tricks
As responder, if you can count enough tricks in your own hand to put the partnership in a game contract, bid game.
 
Count Trumps
This uses the law of total tricks. As responder, compete to the level corresponding to the number of trumps in the combined hands. The best way to understand this is to download and print the quiz and then the answers.
 
Have fun with this. It'll be much more relaxed at the bridge table when there is a preemptive auction.
