Asymmetry in Matchpoint Scoring
By the same token, someone – maybe not even a bad player – may revoke, pull the wrong card, misunderstand an explanation, or just suffer from a black-out. In the scoreboard you will see very few players going down (scoring, say, 5%) and a lot of players making (scoring, say, 55%).

According to Borel!
Only 4-0 is now excluded and the ratios of the other distributions remain the same original 41% and 50%, which now translates to 45% and 55%. However, when we lead for the second round of the suit and second hand follows suit, this changes to the familiar odds of just ...
