Local Bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin

A new kid in town

Our Salisbury bridge community is adding another bridge game to our list of playing opportunities.
Ron Jeffers has established a sanctioned game “One More Game” to meet on Thursdays at 12:30 p.m. at the First Methodist Church at Fisher and Church Streets across from the library. The first game will be held April 24. Parking should be in the library parking lot. Only 2-hour parking is allowed on the street. To enter the building, go to the door on Fisher St or the door on Church St and ring the bell. Someone will answer.
Over the past few years there have been questions about the duties of the Dummy. Dummy does have rights and duties during the game although limited. He may keep track of tricks taken and lost by partnership so that he may assist in any disputes after the game in the presence of the director. He must be allowed to see all the cards played. He must play the card declarer has called, not one of his choosing. He may also do his best to keep declarer from any irregularities in play (e.g. asking if partner has none of the suit just played, and helping declarer to know which hand must lead). He may not initiate a director call or call attention to reneges during play but may help to identify the card where renege occurred. So let dummy see your cards when he asks during play.
