WHEN YOU ARE PLAYING
- Your hand is ALWAYS at the bottom of your screen, irrespective of your compass point.
- When it is your turn to do something (like bid or play a card), your name will change to yellow.
- The dealer is shown with the Letter “D” in the small board # square.
and remember RED means vulnerable and WHITE means not-vulnerable.
- Please ensure that you have at least shown your FIRST name. I like to know against whom I am playing.
- Under the OTHER section, you can include details of your system.
- You SELF-ALERT you own calls – for your opponents’ eyes only.
So, before you actually bid, press the ALERT and provide your explanation. NOW select your call Number & Denomination.
- Please claim if you can, just like you do at the club – it speeds up the game.
- There is no need to play out the hand to the last trick.
