ACBL Live for Clubs Explained

Good news! The ACBL has accepted our suggestion and has changed the help pop-up that explains the blue highlighted double dummy results in ACBL Live for Clubs. The help now says:

Shows all contracts that can be made if all players knew all four hands and bid and played perfectly. Every denomination is tested from each seat. A result such as 4 means that the contract can be made regardless of direction. A result like 3/4 means North (or East) can make 3 and South (or West) can make 4. Indications highlighted in light blue such as 5, with the number after the denomination, show the number of tricks that can be taken in contracts in which the side can take 6 or fewer tricks.

For example, suppose everyone plays a hand in 1NT by South. Half the field makes 1NT and the other half goes down, but 1NT isn’t one of the contracts listed in the double dummy results. In other words, no one can make 1NT against best defense. If the double dummy analysis says (in blue) that NT = 5 for NS, that means that declarer in 1NT should have been down two against best (double-dummy) defense. If that information were not available, no one would know how many tricks 1NT could go down.

Our New President: David Lawrence

David Lawrence has been playing bridge for more than 30 years, and is a Bronze Life Master. He comes from a card-playing family where his parents and grandparents played duplicate bridge. In the early 2000’s, David served on the Portsmouth Country Club Board of Directors for four years as Vice President in charge of the golf course where he developed budgets and provided direction for golf course improvements and staff.

After retiring from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in 2012 as an engineer, David became the Club Manager for Great Bay Bridge Club, and assisted with teaching a youth bridge group for two years. He joined the NHBA Board in 2018 where he stepped in to run a successful sectional tournament.
