  • Sorry about that, they have now been removed.
  • The travellers are now a pdf file and can be downloaded from www.mrbridge.co.uk/library/travellers.pdf (just copy - ctrl+c - the link and paste -ctrl+v - it into your browser address bar).
  • What an awful reply! There are are still places where you can find old fashioned whist drives. If bridge clubs want to recruit new players, one of the places to start might be to run the occasional whist drive. Of course if they want to project them…

  • You could make a weak take out on this hand in either diamonds (better suit) or spades (scores more at duplicate) but using Stayman is not such a bad idea. If partner bids 2S go ahead and bid 4S. If partner bids 2D just pass. And if partner bids 2H …
  • The formal definition of a Reverse is this. If opener bids two suits and if it is necessary for responder to give preference to the first suit at the three level, then this is a reverse. It is strong (normally 16+ pts.) it is forcing and forcing to …

  • What about 6D, before opponents discover their major suits?TV
  • Redoubled overtricks are double the doubled rate i.e. 200/400 and the insult is 100. Hope this helps.

  • Law 5 covers the Assignment of Seats. Quoting in part Law 5A "Having once selected a compass direction, a player may change it within a session only upon instruction or with permission of the Director".
  • What a great response this last one was - especially the bit about bossy duplicate players. As the previous respondent says you should be active in asking partner about failure to follow suit in rubber bridge. In duplicate it remains legal of course…

  • That's why I asked the questions.As a non qualified director how should I rule?
    in Having None? Comment by rlde May 2007
  • Defender should not make this statement to partner and declarer could call the Director and ask for a ruling as the statement by the defender could constitute 'unlawful information' ! but then that's bridge.

  • Re-bidding boxes. Thanks Ned. Very helpful.

  • Be careful - under EBU that is true, step outside the UK and you'll find its the reverse.
    in Bidding Boxes Comment by rlde May 2007
  • ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!! The bidding cards should not be removed until the opening lead is made (face down) and accepted. The auction should stay on the table until this point because the opening leader's partner has a right at this point to a review of t…
