Added DiffLines:

* XanatosGambit: If executed properly, this is the purpose of a squeeze - the opponent is forced to discard an important card, which determines what the player then holds onto in order to take enough tricks. If it works, it doesn't matter what the opponent chooses, as the one initiating the squeeze can then react to take the appropriate subsequent tricks. Generally done by the declarer (since they can see both their cards and their partner's), but defensive squeezes exist.

* ThatOneRule: In tournament and club play, there are procedures for dealing with a board that cannot be scored for any reason at one or more tables. These are mathematically complex, and can result in a pair not involved having its score reduced -- for example, a pair that might otherwise have gotten 10 out of 10 on that board will now get only 9.9. This is disliked both by new players (who don't understand the calculations involved) and by experts (for whom that small adjustment can have an impact on their placement).

Bridge reached the height of its popularity in the 1960s. As its players aged without new players replacing them, it came to be seen as a game for the elderly. The game is seeing a resurgence, mostly on college campuses. Many newspapers have a bridge hand (showing the cards and suggesting the optimal play) as a regular feature, usually near the crossword puzzle. Paul Allen, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett play bridge regularly.

regularly, as did Deng Xiaoping (whose only title upon his death in 1997 was Honorary Chairman of the China Bridge Association).

* In ''[[Franchise/CarryOn Carry On Regardless]]'', Sam is sent on a job which he thinks involves a spying mission to meet at a bridge, when in fact he was hired to play as a fourth in a game of Bridge. He never made it to the game because he jumped out the train for his "mission".

Bridge (or more accurately, contract bridge, to distinguish it from its now-forgotten predecessor, auction bridge) is a [[CardGames card game]] played by two pairs of players. It is a trick-taking game: on each round, each player plays one card, and the pair who plays the best card wins the trick. The game takes place in two phases -- an auction, to determine which partnership will choose the trump (if any) and how many tricks they intend to take, and the actual play of the cards.
