Chicago bridge, or 4-deal bridge, takes its name from the Standard Club of Chicago where it originated and 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). The vulnerability is pre-determined for each deal:
- On the first deal, neither side is vulnerable
- For the second and third deals, only the dealer’s side is vulnerable
- Finally the fourth deal, both sides are vulnerable.
