Pass & Roll is a 4-part call.
Left Pass & Roll is the
mirror image of Pass & Roll.
From a 1x4, some callers add the word 'Single' before calling Pass & Roll.
They think that since the call is normally done from a 2 x 4 (an Eight Chain Thru
formation), 'Single' allows the call to be done from a 1 x 4.
This is an incorrect usage of the term
The word 'Single' is not required.
Some glossaries define Pass & Roll as a Touch; Scoot Back; and Split Circulate.
It is not recommended that you memorize this cheat definition for at least two reasons:
Pass & Roll can also be done from a R-H Mini-Wave Box. In this
case, the first Pass Thru is really quick (you may need to "rear-back"
to see where you are).
- Pass & Roll is a 4-part call, whereas the cheat given above
is a 3-part call. If the caller fractionalizes the call (for example,
7/8 Pass & Roll ends in a R-H Diamond), you're in trouble.
- Callers sometimes use parts-related concepts such as (from Magic Columns)
Those Facing Start Pass & Roll, or (from Trade By or R-H 3/4 Tag)
Finish A Pass & Roll. If you use the cheat definition, you may
not be able to understand or execute these variations.
