Keeping Score


quiz-pic

With the advent of scoring machines and online bridge, fewer and fewer players know how to keep score in bridge. That's not the end of the world. However, when making competitive decisions, it's important to know which contract scores better. In this quiz, I won't ask you what the score is for a particular contract, but I will ask you which score is best (or worst). 

 

Scoring notation. Contracts are from the perspective of declarer so 4♠= means declarer made exactly 4♠. 4♠-1 means it went down one and 4♠+1 means declarer took 11 tricks. 

+ or - depends on whether your side was successful or not.
