A few reminders when playing bridge:

  • The bidding boxes must be used.

  • On no account should any of the bids be changed once a bidding card has been placed on the table.

Please do not say "I made a mistake" after making a bid.

  • Leave bidding cards on the table until first card has been played.

REMEMBER you can call the Tournament Director if anyone is not happy with the bidding and the game will be AVERAGED.

  • When the game commences please let declarer concentrate.

  • On no account should declarer touch cards in dummy unless that card is being played.

  • Once a card has been played by any player it cannot be changed.

There are 4 players at the table, each should be able to see bids made and cards played.
