Bridge & other card games/Scoring on renege

Question
My opponent reneged,I realize we get two tricks, however, do we get 60 points as it was a major suit and 100 for going down 2? I also realize the score is over the line.

Answer
Hi,

You did not tell me which side was the declarer, which side were the defenders, what the contract was and what the result was.

I you were defending and set the contract 2 not vulnerable as a result of the revoke then you get 100 above the line and nothing else. The only time you would get 60 is if the contract was made. Then there would be no 100.

I can answer questions on bidding and on cardplay with the caveat that the former may necessarily involve some subjectivity. I have been playing tournament bridge for over 20 years and I have won several regional tournaments.
