Bridgemate Functions for the small, blank keys: a. Accept Result (ACCEPT) After the scorekeeper (usually North) has entered the board number, contract, declarer, and result; either player from the other partnership (usually East or West) reviews the results to verify that they are right. When the results are correct, the reviewer presses the small, blank key at the far right side under “ACCEPT”. If the result is incorrect, the reviewer explains the reason the result seems incorrect. When both sides agree that a correction is necessary, the scorekeeper presses the “CANCEL” button at the bottom of the key pad as many times as necessary (e. g., three times to correct the board number) and reenters the corrected information. Then the reviewer checks the corrected information. b. 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. The director’s computer will make a door knocking sound calling the director’s attention to your director call. c. Correct player names (CORREC) after (NAMES) If any player name is incorrect, you may correct it from your table. 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. d. View player names (NAMES) Press the small, blank key under “NAMES” at the bottom of the display. Your Bridgemate will show the names of the players who should be seated at your table for the current round. If both names from either partnership are incorrect, call the director. If one player name is incorrect, you may correct it at the table (See “CORREC”, above.) 3. Lesson Hands posted on the club web site now include links to related web sites.

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.

  It’s a Bidder’s Game

  It is a statistical fact of life that, on most bridge deals, either the
  assets are distributed somewhat evenly or quite unevenly. In the second
  case, one side can usually win nine (or more) tricks in one (or more)
  denomination(s) while the other side can make nothing. In the first
  case, it is nearly always true that both sides can make a partscore.

                Table Auction:
  
      North    East    South    West  
     Pass *
     Pass † Pass § Pass #
Possible Auction:
      North    East    South    West  
     Pass
     1 †‡ Pass 1 Pass
     2 All Pass
* Passing is certainly a reasonable first seat alternative. Especially at favorable vulnerability, 3 openings happen more and more often on hands like this one. In pairs using methods where 2 may be a natural, weak two opener, the KJx make this hand only slightly unsuitable for that action. † In a post mortem, some will think this the strongest hand dealt. Yet, a second seat pass is clearly somewhere between reasonable and the only systemically valid choice using many popular methods. Precision bidders might open 1 and pass any nonforcing response. They might easily land in the spade partial top spot. § By other reckoning, East may hold the best hand at the table. Even though North-South hold the balance of power by the slimmest margin of 19 HCP to 21 HCP, East–West have no recourse over their 3 bid. To keep North-South out of the auction, action by East may be vital. My partner and I would open the East hand 1NT in any seat at any vulnerability—problem solved. Oddly, an ordinary, light 1 opening may do the trick. South has too many diamonds and too few hearts for a light takeout double and no suitable overcall. If West responds 2, East may pass. The likely +50 score to North–South for 2 down one may be a top or tie for top compared to the hands where either North or South open the bidding. # If South gets the chance to open after three passes, the board hangs on South’s choice. With 10 HCP and four spades, the hand has fourteen Pearson Points. Following the Rule of Fifteen by passing with less than fifteen Pearson Points will hand East–West a nearly certain top or tie for top. A South player who views "rules" more as guidelines than as laws may conclude that if partner has the expected three-card spade holding, spades will not be a problem. Further, even when the opponents hold a spade fit, South has quite solid defense against a spade contract. If South fudges the Rule of Fifteen, a 1 opening may lead to a sound, profitable 2 contract. ‡ If South passes, raises hearts, or responds 1 or 1NT, North will survive the high risk opening bid. If South responds 2 or 2, North will have a more difficult auction that may lead to a very bad board. The high risk of a very bad score for a pass out, pressures third seat and fourth seat bidders to seriously consider opening hands which they would almost certainly pass in first or second seat. Such light openers aim not for game, but for partscore (or pushing the opponents into a contract they cannot make). - Return to Results, Recap, or Menu. - Return to a Pair Summary by picking an "Untitled" page.
