Another Scoring Error
People need to learn to check the Bridgemate, pure and simple. I always check the board number, the contract and the direction and I've told my partner to keep her hands off the thing until I've checked it. I also speak the result out loud, so the whole ...

Salvaging Some Matchpoints
You can change your unintended call (Mechanical Error) anytime before partner makes a call.
