PAYNESVILLE BRIDGE CLUB
PAYNESVILLE BRIDGE CLUB

Paynesville Bridge Club meets every Wednesday commencing 12.30 p.m. at the R.S.L. in Main Street, Paynesville. We play between 27 and 32 boards and finish play at approximately 4.00 to 4.30 p.m. Table fees are $5.00 for members and visitors which includes a very nice afternoon tea. We welcome visitors of any standard. Please be at the venue 10 minutes before the scheduled start of play to allow the director and scorer time to set up.

HOW TO BE A GOOD DUMMY

When displaying the dummy, make sure all 13 cards are visible An adjusted score may be necessary if the opponents are damaged because a card was hidden.
* At the end of play dummy may point out a revoke.
* Dummy may try to prevent an irregularity by declarer. Once declarer has committed an irregularity e.g. has already led from the wrong hand, dummy must say and do nothing.
* If declarer has failed to follow suit, dummy may ask if he has revoked e.g. "Having none?" or "No spades?"
*Dummy may tell any player that his immediately quitted trick is pointing the wrong way. This right ends for dummy and defenders once the lead is made to the next trick.
* Dummy may give information in the Director's presence as to fact or law.

 DUMMY MAY NOT
* Play a card from dummy unless told to do so by declarer.
*Suggest cards to be played e.g. by moving a hand towards them
*Ask defenders if they may have revoked
*Call attention to an irregularity until the hand is finished
*Call for the Director during play unless another player has first pointed out the irregularity
* Look at a defender's hand while play is in progress
* Leave his seat to watch declarer playing the hand.

TEN BASIC RULES OF BRIDGE ETIQUETTE

1. Be nice, smile… No matter how well or poorly you play bridge, you are an Ambassador for the game. You can drive people away or you can make them love it…. We need people. 

2. Don’t Gloat… Don’t compliment yourselves on a bid or the play of the hand until the opponents leave the table. Also, don’t thank an opponent for a good board or a trick you shouldn’t get… This makes people feel bad and makes you look like a jerk.

3. Don’t give lessons to anyone at the table… If your opponent or partner wants to know what they did wrong or how to better play or bid a hand they will ask.

4. Learn not to get offended when a director is called on you. This is part of the game. The director is there to protect everyone and especially the integrity of the game.

5. Don’t tell opponents or winners how lucky they are… Don’t undermine their successes. You only make yourself look like a poor loser and a poor sport… Be gracious. 

6. Keep your voice even and the gestures consistent when bidding or playing the hands… Don’t snap your cards or make any unusual movements to get your point across… Be ethical.

7. When on lead against a contract, LEAD and then write down the contract on your scorecard or enter the information on the Bridgemate … same thing for dummy, lay your hand down and then write down the contract or attend to the Bridgemate.

8. Don’t discuss the hands until the round is over… This takes time like #7 and it is rude.

9. Help the director… His/Her job is tough enough without you adding to their problem.

10. Don’t make decisions that the director should be making, even if you know the rule.
