Duplicate Bridge at the Bridge Deck

by Dan Darrow, Guest Writer

Folks who have previous bridge-playing experience are invited to join the weekly Port Ludlow Duplicate Bridge group. This is a sanctioned American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) game, but ACBL membership is not required. The only requirement is to bring a partner.

In duplicate bridge, the cards are dealt once and placed in special boards. All boards are played in rotation, changing opponents every 3 – 5 boards and then the results are compared. Thus, you don’t need a “good” hand to do well. Often, the team that plays well on defense gets the top scores.

If you are new to duplicate, do not worry. The Port Ludlow group is friendly and happy to help newcomers. Meet at the Bridge Deck (on Harbor Drive above the Beach Club) every Monday at 11:45 a.m. and play until approximately 4:30 p.m.
