This video shows you how to set up bidding constraints on bridgebase. For instance this means you could for example make one hand always have 4 hearts, always have between 12-14 points, always have a minimum of 2 cards in every suit. Basically whatever you want to do….however you choose. This is a great way to practice certain hand types like 5-4 in the majors, weak 2’s, weak NT, 2NT openers and so forth….
In this video…I’m going to help you with a few things which commonly come up to help you in your decision making when playing teams. A bridge Teams event uses International Match Points or IMP’s compared to playing in a Matchpointed Pairs event.
Let’s take an example…If you score 110 making 3 and the other 5 pairs make 2NT exactly scoring 120…you would get an outright bottom….but at teams with only 10 points difference in the scores this counts for exactly nothing….it would be known as a flat board.
So straight away there is a massive difference between teams and pairs….
