Dummy Points Mar 9 2017


Marty Bergen says

When you have support for partner's major suit, you expect to be the dummy. If you have a short suit (or two), here is the correct way to add points:
Counting Dummy's Short-Suit Points
Doubleton = 1 point for each one.
Singleton = 2 points, but 3 points with 4+ trumps.
Void = number of trumps in dummy's hand. Dummy should NOT count 5 points for a void unless he has 5 trumps.

Downey, Ned; Pomer, Ellen (2005). Standard Bidding with SAYC. say
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand_evaluation
When the supporting hand holds three trumps, shortness is valued[2][13] as follows:
void = 3 points singleton = 2 points doubleton = 1 point
When the supporting hand holds four or more trumps, thereby having more spare trumps for ruffing, shortness is valued[13] as follows:
void = 5 points singleton = 3 points doubleton = 1 point
Shortage points (also known as support points or dummy points) are added to HCP to give total points.

Dummy Points Points used in place of length points when valuing a hand in support of partner's suit: void, 5 points; singleton, 3 points; doubleton, 1 point.

None of these distinguish between a 4 trump dummy in a 4-4 8-card fit and a 5-4 9-card fit.
None suggest voids and singletons are worth more if in a suit bid by the opponents
Is shortness also worth more if in a suit bid by partner (partner will likely have low card loosers needing to be ruffed)?
