Rules Of Bridge – The Basics
There are some very basic rules of bridge that most people know. There are rules that govern when you may fold your hand, and there are rules that govern when you may play a hand, and when you should move your hand to the middle of the table to take another. However, these rules often get forgotten or ignored entirely. Bridge is one of those games that tend to involve a lot of ‘back and forth.’ If you don’t understand these basic rules, then it is almost guaranteed that you will have a really bad time with a bridge.
One of the first things that you should learn in bridge is what the bidding conventions are. This is very similar to the rules for blackjack, in that there are two basic types of bidding conventions. The first type is known as the closed bidding convention, and the second type is called the open bidding convention. In this article, we will discuss the differences between these two bidding conventions.
In bridge, there are four suits. The suits are spade, clubs, flush and high card. There are also a few other minor differences. One difference is that the high card is worth ten times as much as the other three suits, and the flush is worth two times as much as the other three suits. This is just the tip of the iceberg, though, and there are actually many more tricks that you can learn that will help you win.
One thing that you should know about the bidding conventions is that they are based on honor cards. In other words, each player has seven honor cards, which are placed in certain positions around the table according to the starting hand. At the beginning of the game, the highest bidder on each suit will be entitled to the honor cards.
After the starting hand, the second highest bidder gets to have the first and third highest, and so on. Following are the four suits, which are spade, flush, high card and clubs. The highest bidder on each suit has the ace, king, queen, king of the same color and the ace of the next color. And that’s not all! You can only get an ace from one color for the purposes of betting, but you can bet an ace of any color for the purposes of buying chips. You can also bet three pairs of same colors or one pair of same and opposite colors.
Hopefully by now you should have a good idea of how the rules of bridge differ from the rules of other games. If so, the next time you play bridge you should be ready to take your chances. Just remember to always play according to the basic rules of bridge. Good luck!
