Bridge Terms

  Bidding Style  Do you bid by the rules, or are your bids strictly seat of the pants. Are you an aggressive bidder or conservative. Do people believe you have what you bid or do you stretch it to the limits.

  Alert  Announcing to the opponents that certain bids you make are unusual and not what they are thinking. You might want to keep secrets from them but you wouldn't like it so much if they did.

  Life Insurance  Playing one last trump even though you know you have them all in...just in case. Your life is at risk if you miscount and partner is watching closely.

  Ethics  The code of conduct for Bridge players. You're not supposed to read anything into a hesitation partner makes during the bidding.
