♠ Director ruling - A revoke, where the player that had revoked realised before the trick was completed. Since the revoke was not established (law 63) the card played was withdrawn and replaced with a legal card (law 62). The revoke was by a defender so the revoke card stayed on the table as a major penalty card (law 62B1). The next non-offending player was allowed to withdraw the card he had played and play another (law 62C1).
♥ Claims - If a claim has been made, you can now ask for the cards to be played, provided all agree, although it is in your interest to call the Director. This is a change introduced with the 2017 laws (see below).
♠ Tip - If you do not have a convention card that supports your system the TD may rule against you. Complete a convention card!

To ensure maximum enjoyment for all players, could members and guests kindly take note of our protocols.
Any player may call the TD at any time if there is a problem during the bidding or play - the TD is there to help so please do not hesitate to call him or her. However, if dummy is the only one to spot a problem, he or she should not say anything until play is complete when the TD must be called. This does not prevent dummy from trying to stop declarer from making an infringement.
A Tournament Director is in place at every club meeting to facilitate good practice. Please enjoy your bridge. August 2015
