"DEALING WITH UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR"

READ it & LIVE it.

If a player at the table behaves in an unacceptable manner,

the director should be called immediately.

The following are some examples of behavior which will not be tolerated:

Badgering, rudeness, insinuations, intimidation, profanity, threats, or violence.

Negative comments concerning opponents’ or partner’s play or bidding.

Constant and gratuitous lessons and analyses at the table.

Loud and disruptive arguing with a director’s ruling.

Annoying behavior, embarrassing remarks, or any other conduct which might

interfere with the enjoyment of the game is specifically prohibited by Law 74A.

Law 91A gives the director the authority to assess disciplinary penalties.

There should be NO warnings
