TIP OF THE WEEK:  Continuing with our TIPS on protocol and ethics, let us look at what the dummy CAN DO:
1.  Dummy may keep count of tricks won and lost and will follow the play as it occurs.  Therefore, if a player turns his cards in such a fashion that dummy cannot see them; they may ask to see a card.
2.  Dummy plays the cards of the dummy as declarer’s agent as directed.  Dummy may NOT inform declarer that he has a trick turned incorrectly UNLESS it is done so IMMEDIATELY.
3.  Dummy may try to prevent any irregularity by declarer – as in not let declarer turn the trick wrong or warn declarer against leading from the wrong hand.
4.  Dummy may draw attention to any irregularity – BUT ONLY AFTER THE PLAY IS COMPLETED.
