Lesson Four: Declarer and Dummy

In contract Bridge and MiniBridge we count High Card Points.
When we get 13 cards, we start to count our points:
For each Ace we get 4 points,
each King is 3 points,
each Queen is 2 points,
each Jack is 1 point.

Total of 40 High Card Points (HCP) in the bridge deck.

Ace, King, Queen, Jack call high cards.
10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2 call small cards.
