Contract Value

The value of a contract is the total of the trick values for the bid level, e.g.:

3 No Trumps= 40 + 30 + 30 = 100

3 Spades= 30 + 30 + 30 = 90

1 No Trump= 40

5 Clubs= 20 +20 +20 +20 +20 = 100.

If the declarer makes the contract, the contract value is added to the score below the line for the current game.

A contract value of less than 100 is a part score.

A game is made when the score below the line is 100 or more. When a game is made a new game is started. The rubber is complete when one side has won two games.

When a rubber is completed the total scores for both sides are calculated, and the side with the most points is declared the winner. A new rubber will be started on the next deal.
