The Standard Club of Chicago gave its name to Chicago bridge, or 4-deal bridge, from where this version of the game originated. There’s been a sharp rise in its popularity in the last few years. This is because it’s quicker to play. In Chicago bridge, a rubber is made up of just 4 deals which generally last around 20 minutes each. After 4 deals, it’s possible for players to join or leave the game, which makes Chicago more flexible than Rubber bridge if you have between 4 and 7 players and want to rotate the play (you can get guidance on how to add and rotate players from our Contract Indicator and Scoring Aid). Chicago bridge pre-determines the vulnerability for each deal:
- On the first deal, neither side is vulnerable
- With the second and third deals, only the dealer’s side is vulnerable
- Finally, the fourth deal, both sides are vulnerable.
While the basic elements of scoring are similar to rubber bridge, their method of accumulation and recording differ slightly, and honours do score. We include scoring tables for both Rubber and Chicago bridge in our Contract Indicator and Scoring Aid. We also sell pocket size and A5 size Chicago scoring tables so that you can always score your games correctly.
