Laws of Duplicate Bridge updated 2017 - Click here for details

As the Laws of Bridge have been updated and are in force from September 2017, we will post a brief outline of a few of the amended rules over the course of the year.  John Crimmins kindly gave us a brief talk on some of the rules and we can put the rule below into practice now.  It will take a few weeks for us to get used to it but it will become the norm after a while.

Law 7 – Control of Boards and Cards
This law has always been here.  It has been amended subtly and now requires the board to remain in the center of the table during play correctly oriented.  Players are encouraged to follow this law so as to reduce the risk of cards being returned to incorrect pockets.

New Grading System effective September 2017

NOTE:  THE OPTION TO REGRADE EXPIRES ON DECEMBER 31st

CBAI membership/grading cards were distributed in September using the old Grading System
Players who wish to regrade must hand their CBAI card to the Secretary of their ‘Home’ Club who will pass the request to your Regional Secretary
A fresh membership card will then be issued in early 2018

  1. An Intermediate  B2 player holding less than 2000 Local Points, may apply to be regraded to Novice N1 provided it is less than 5 years since they took their first lesson
  2. An Intermediate B1 player holding less than 1 National Point (5000 Local Points) may apply to be regraded to Intermediate B2.
  3. An Intermediate A2 player holding less than 2 National Points (10000 Local Points) may apply to be regraded to Intermediate B1
  4. An Intermediate  A1 player holding less than 5 National Point (25000 Local Points) may apply to be regraded to Intermediate A2.
  5. Regional  Master player holding less than 40 National Points may apply to be regraded to Area Master
  • Regrading is entirely optional and the choice of the individual member – if they do not apply, they will hold the grade shown on their card on September 1st
  • The option to regrade expires on December 31st
