Contract bridge, usually known simply as bridge, is a trick-taking
card game using a standard deck of 52 playing cards played by
four players in two competing partnerships sitting opposite each other around a
table. For purposes of scoring and reference, each player is identified by one
of the points of the compass
and thus North and South play against East and West. The game consists of
several hands (or deals)
through four phases: dealing
the cards, the auction (also referred to as bidding), playing the hand,
and scoring the results. Dealing the cards and scoring the results are
activities while the auction and playing the hand are the two actively
competitive phases of the game. i don't know where this definition comes from. i assume John Papadopoulos copied it from wikipedia.
