SUPERVISED SESSIONS

 

 

This is a relaxed session suitable for those starting to play duplicate or those wanting to improve skills and partnership communication. There is help with bidding if you need it, no partner required.

 

For club members interested in brushing up on bidding/play we will be covering the following topics over the next few months;  defence to 1NT and refining responses to 1NT, revisiting the losing trick count and transfers.  If you would like to join in for any of these topics please ask for the relevant dates.  Everyone welcome.

 

 

We meet on Wednesday evenings at The Methodist Church, 1 London Street, Swaffham at 7pm.

Best wishes

 

Rebecca

TABLET ETIQUETTE

 

EBU Points of Etiquette for Clubs with Electronic Scoring Terminals 

Know your membership number to input at the beginning of the session.

North is responsible for entering the scores but he/she may delegate this to South.

East is responsible for verifying the entry but he/she may delegate this to West.

If there is a mistake, North should undo the score and re-enter it correctly, and this should then be verified by East.

If an incorrect result has been erroneously verified and cannot be corrected, the scorer (or director) should be called.

The other players may request to see the overall percentage and other scores. Best practice is for East (or West) to hold the terminal in a fashion such that all the other players at the table can see these.

If you are not sure about something, please ask the Scorer or Director.

A Simple Guide to Alerting

 

ANNOUNCING

1NT opening Responder must announce your point range
2D/2H/2S opening  Announce ‘weak’ or ‘strong and forcing’
2C after 1NT opening Announce ‘Stayman’ if that is the meaning
2D/2H after 1NT opening Announce ‘Transfer to Hearts’ or ‘Transfer to Spades’
1C/1D Opening  Announce that the suit may be fewer than 3 cards
(if short in that suit)
2NT Opening No Announcement or Alert

 

STOP CARD

This must be used whenever a bid is made which bypasses a level of bidding.  The stop card should be held making sure all at the table has seen it.  The next bidder should NOT bid until the Stop card is put away.

 

ALERT

You should use the alert card if your partner bids any artificial bid.  You do not alert or announce your own bid.

Examples of bids that should be alerted

2C showing a strong hand

1C should be alerted if playing a strong 1C system

2D should be alerted if playing Multi or Benji Acol

2C should be alerted if playing Benji Acol

When the Alert card is played no explanation should be given until asked for by the opposition.  If you are asked for the meaning of partner’s call and you are not sure, you must not say how you intend to interpret it.

Bids after 3NT are not alertable except in very particular cases.

ASKING QUESTIONS

Do NOT ask the meaning of a bid just because it has been alerted and it is your turn to bid unless you are considering bidding.  Wait until the end of the auction.

 

 

NOTE:  Please be tolerant if opponents alert when they should announce or announce when they shouldn’t.
