For anyone unfamiliar with "BRIDGE"

Bridge is a card game for four players per table. The positions at the table are given the names North, South, East, and West. . North and South are partners and East and West are partners. The cards are dealt in rotation to each player until each player has thirteen cards.

The game gets its origin fron the game of Whist. There can be a trump suit, either clubs, diamonds, hearts or spades or there can be no trump. The decision of the trump suit is decided by bidding starting with the dealer and goes around the table in a clockwise direction. Each player can either pass or bid a suit or no trump. The bidding is complete when everyone has had an opportunity to bid and there there has been three passes. The player who first bids either the final suit or no trump becomes the "Declarer". The player to the left of the Declarer starts play with the opening lead. The player opposite the Declarer becomes the "Dummy" and places his cards on the table.

The Declarer states which card will be played from Dummy. When all four positions have played a card, this is called a trick. The highest card played to the trick wins unless there is a trump. Everyone must follow suit unless they have no cards in the suit led. They are then allowed to trump if there is a trump suit.

When all thirteen tricks have been played, the hand is finished. If the daclarer won six tricks (his book) plus the number of tricks bid, he has made his contract and scores. If he wins less than that number, he is down and the opponents score.
