Scoring Bridge Hands
If you are like most people who play bridge, your main goal is to win the game. After all, what fun would it be if you lost every time that you played? But as you can imagine, you need to know how to keep a Bridge score if you are going to know who wins each game. Luckily, you can learn the scoring process of bridge in no time at all.
As you can imagine, the main point of bridge is for each partnership to score as many points as possible. If you have more than the other team at the end of the game, you are going to be the winner when everything is said and done.
There are several points that you need to know as far as scoring is concerned. When the declarer meets the contract, they receive points for the following:
On the other side of things, the declarer is not always going to meet the contract. When this happens, the other team receives points based on the under tricks. This is the number of tricks that the declarer fell short of reaching the contract level.
As far as bonuses are concerned, these can change from game to game. Depending on the type of bridge that you are playing, you may have the ability to collect game, small slam, and grand slam bonuses. It is important that you are aware of the bonuses that are in play before you actually begin a hand.
All in all, a lot of the scoring process has to do with the type of bridge that you are playing. For instance, the scoring with contract bridge is not going to be the same with Chicago, duplicate bridge, etc. So once again, you need to know what type of bridge you are playing, as well as the scoring that govern each game.
Bridge scoring is something that you will learn as you continue to play more and more. This is one aspect of bridge that can be hard to learn on paper. But luckily, once you see a game scored in front of you, you will have a much better understanding of what you are dealing with.
