Bridge Etiquette

Directors and the Committee have decided that there shall be a number of weeks when we focus on and remind players about aspects of bridge etiquette.

The list of weekly topics can be viewed by the following link

/TinyFileManager/resources/files/59///bridge etiquette

In addition the topic for each week will be posted here.

Focus for w/c 13th January:

If when playing a hand as declarer you wish to claim tricks you can show your hand and explain to your opponents how you will make the contract. Opponents can challenge this.     

Once you have claimed and there is a query the cards can only be played out if the non-claiming side request and all four players agree. In this case the prior claim is void.   Otherwise the director has to be called to adjudicate. Of the two options it is recommended that the director be called.
