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.
