The game of bridge has two main parts: the Bidding (also called the Auction) and the Play. Bridge is a partnership game requiring four players. Each player sits opposite his partner at a card table. Bridge is played with a standard deck of 52 playing cards. One of the players deals all of the cards, 13 to each player, in clockwise rotation, beginning with the player to the left of the dealer. In bridge there are four suits, and they are ranked: spades (highest), hearts, diamonds and clubs (lowest). The ranking is for bidding purposes only. In the play all suits are equal, unless one suit has been named as trumps, then it beats all the others. The cards of each suit are ranked from the ace (highest) through the two (lowest). The object in bridge play is to win tricks for your side. A trick consists of four cards, one from each player in turn, clockwise around the table. Hence, there are 13 tricks to be won on each deal. The first card played to each trick is called the lead. If it is your turn to lead, you may play any card in your hand. After the lead, however, the next three players have an obligation to play the same suit as the lead, if possible. If you cannot follow suit, you may play any card in your hand. If a trick contains no trump card, it is won by the highest card of the suit led. If a trick contains a trump card, it is won by the highest trump played. After each trick, one player of the side that wins it should collect the cards and arrange them neatly so the number of tricks won can be counted easily. Play continues this way for all 13 tricks.The bidding determines who will be the declarer, which suit (if any) will be trumps, and the number of tricks declarer must win. The player to the left of declarer makes the first lead. The hand held by declarer?s partner is then displayed face up for all to see. This is called the dummy, and the player who held it does not participate in the play. Declarer must play both the dummy and his own hand, although each in proper turn. After the opening lead, the hand that wins each trick must lead to the next trick. For 4 players.
