Michigan Bridge Card Rules
Playing bridge is a great and relaxing activity to do at home with the family. Bridge rules are very specific. Here is some information on Michigan bridge card rules.
Michigan bridge rules are always followed in a competitive environment. Before any game, everyone is fully prepared. Card sorting is done before every game. Every hand is put together for the first five minutes of play, before any other player can make a move.
Each hand is dealt out in turn. The player who is dealt the best hand gets a fresh card. After that, it is possible for two players to try and draw a card that is not in their hand. However, there are limitations on this move. Both cards will be dealt out, so a new player cannot draw a card that could be used by another player.
The person who ends up with the weakest hand gets dealt a deck of cards from the hands of other players. The deck is then shuffled and dealt out to the remaining players. The dealer places three cards face down on the table before getting out the deck. The dealer gives one card to each player, and these cards are placed face up on the table in front of the dealer. This rule is to keep the players from seeing all the cards the same way.
The dealer then discards the deck and shuffles the cards again. This continues until the cards are ready for play. A hand is turned over and it is dealt out to the starting players. The second player has to stand to serve the dealer.
The next hand is dealt out to the second player. The dealer goes around the table giving one card to each player. It is the responsibility of the second player to remember what card has been given to him. He must keep that card between his fingers at all times while playing.
Michigan bridge card rules are simple and easy to follow. Good luck and enjoy!
