Bergen's Rules For Being A Good Partner

19. Learn your Partner's style, regardless of how you feel about it. Do not expect Partner to bid exactly as you would.

20. Picture problems, bidding/defense, from Partner's viewpoint. Choose the bid/play that makes her life easier.

21. (Last) Sympathize with Partner if she/he makes a mistake. Let Partner know you like her/him and always root for her/him 100%.

Making Our Game Better

Here's a couple of tips to make our game better and more pleasant for everyone:

  • Arrive at least 10 minutes before game time
  • Check your cell phone before the game starts and turn it off or on silence
  • Make your lead before recording the contract
  • Delay any discussion of the previous hand until you have a break or after the game
