Your Bridgemate will show the names of the players who should be seated at your table for the current round. b.

After you confirm that your Bridgemate is displaying the correct round number (If you are uncertain, please, call the director BEFORE you make a correction.), press the small, blank key under “CORREC”. The new display will let you enter a corrected player number for the player whose name is incorrect. After the correction, notify the director to make sure that the corrected player name reaches the game records in the scoring program. c. Call director (CALL TD) Press the small, blank key under “CALL TD”. A director call message indicating your section and table number will appear on the director’s computer.

Contact the club director before noon on the Friday after the game. The director will check for errors entering scores and inspect travelers for unusual scores that may be mistakes. To correct a score in favor of the player reporting a mistake, the director will often request confirmation from the pair whose score will become less favorable as a result of the correction. Yet, when making score adjustments, the director may rule in favor of a pair who keep personal scores when the opponents do not keep personal scores.

  Reprise

  Readers of this week’s lesson hand may have a sense of déjà vu as they
  study this minilesson. It’s the same hand. Touch and go slams can be
  big swing boards for the declaring side when they make—for the defense
  when they go down.

* With the club void, West is strong enough to open 2. West chose 1 to make introducing both majors (perhaps, also diamonds) easier. † 3, 4, and 5 are reasonable alternatives to 2. Opposite a partner who has passed, many players will prefer one of the preemptive bids. When partner has not yet bid, the 2 overcall will probably be more popular. § In some partnerships, East might offer a preemptive raise to 3 with such a weak hand including four-card trump support and a ruffing value in the adverse suit. # West’s 2 bid promises extra values and forces East to provide West with another rebid. Spades are not longer than hearts but may be the same length. ‡ East takes a preference to hearts without promising more than 5-7 total points. ** After East hints at heart support with the preference to hearts, the delayed diamond raise shows both control and secondary support. †† Rebidding the hearts shows real heart support while tending to deny a side suit control outside of diamonds. §§ Playing East for help in both red suits, West goes for the slam. This is a reasonable, but not bullet proof, slam contract. I went down by cashing two top diamonds to lose one diamond and the A. Taking the finesse for the Q is the correct play. There are, other than checking the double dummy analysis, several ways to choose the finesse over the drop. One might view the J as a true card from J singleton or a false card from Jx doubleton (which will make no difference as the Q will drop on the next round). There is a method called The Law of Restricted Choice which applies in situations like this one. When an opponent plays one of two touching cards tied for third and fourth rank, probability theory offers help if the number of cards outstanding in the suit is low enough so that the defender may have been forced to play one of the two nearly top cards. If a defender holds both of the cards tied for third/fourth rank, good defenders will first play one card randomly with a 50% chance followed by the other. Thus whether a defender play the queen or the jack offers no direct information of the "true card" or "false card" sort. However, in a probabilistic sense, when one defender plays a card tied for third/fourth rank, the other defender holds the remaining card two thirds of the time (twice as often as the first defender holding both cards of the third/fourth rank. Thus, I would have doubled my chances for success (and made my slam) if I had finessed South for the Q on the second round rather than playing for the drop. - Return to Results, Recap, or Menu. - Return to a Pair Summary by picking an "Untitled" page.
