Introduction

Hello Fellow Bridge Players!

The Y's Men play Bridge once a week on Fridays, all year round. 

The Friday game is really for experienced players interested in competitiveness. By voted decision at the end of 2015, we normally play Duplicate. Chicago will be the fallback, in case the proper number of players or the absence of a director will turn a Duplicate session not possible. The venue is the Westport Center for Senior Activities from 12:00 to 4:00 pm. Mário Sá Couto (203-227-4077 or 203-722-1495) is the Director and Bob Sussman (203-226-1681) the Assistant Director.

If you are a beginner or a player that has not been active for some time (maybe since college...), we encourage you to try to form a foursome and try to play some Rubber Bridge before you join the Friday Bridge sessions. If you encounter difficulties in doing it, contact Mário Sá Couto or Bob Sussman who will try to help. You can either play at the Westport Center for Senior Activities or play at the residence of one of the partners that would like to host the group.

Typically there are three playing seasons for Friday Bridge:

  • the Fall Season (from the first Friday in September to the second or third Friday in December),
  • the Winter/Spring Season (from the first Friday in January to the last Friday in May), and
  • the Summer Season (from the first Friday in June to the last Friday in August).

Players for the Friday game are registered as Regular or Substitute Players. Regular Players are expected to play every Friday or, in case they can't play, to notify the Director or the Assistant Director not later than the prior Thursday evening. Substitute Players will be contacted as needed to fill vacancies.  

Roster of Players  

Please note that on August 18th, 2017, John Fisher Scored 7240 points in the Chicago session played that day. This qualifies him to occupy the third position in the Hall of Fame of High Score Chicago Scores. Congratulations John! Keep up the good playing!

aka Four-Deal Bridge

On October 19th 2012, following a proposal by Harris Usdan voted afirmatively by everyone present on October 12th, the Friday Bridge group started to use Chicago scoring instead of Rubber Bridge Scoring. This first experiment was successful and well accepted by the whole group.

There are several versions of this game, also known in the official rules as Four-Deal Bridge. As this name suggests, it is a game for four players which normally is complete in four deals, making it a fun game for social play.

The vulnerability varies from hand to hand in a fixed pattern as follows:

  • Hand 1: Dealer North; neither side vulnerable
  • Hand 2: Dealer East; North-South vulnerable
  • Hand 3: Dealer South; East-West vulnerable
  • Hand 4: Dealer West; both sides vulnerable

Each hand is scored duplicate style (2S making 3 is 140, 4H vulnerable is 620, etc.). There is no accumulation of part scores or games from deal to deal.

A multiple of four hands can be played, repeating the sequence of vulnerabilities as often as necessary. For Friday Y’s Men’s Bridge, hands 5 & 6 vulnerability will be: 

  • Hand 5: Dealer North; neither side vulnerable
  • Hand 6: Dealer East; both sides vulnerable

The final score for the six hands is simply the addition of the scores of the six deals played.
