Welcome to Congleton Bridge Club
The Laws 2017

Click here for full pdf version

The Decadual revision of the Laws of Duplicate Bridge come into force on 1st August.  There has been quite a lot of rewording but only a few changes that will affect anything.  The next section links to a useful summary of the changes which I found on the Welsh Bridge Union Website

Summary of major changes provided by the Welsh Bridge Union

Things which players/directors should note:

  1. An unaccepted insuffient bid can now be replaced without penalty by a 'comparible call'.  Roughly speaking this includes any call with the same meaning.  So if you bid 2C over your partner's 2NT you can replace it with 3C without penalty so long as both were Stayman.  This has increased significantly the number of calls that can be made without penalty
     
  2. If a claim is contested then, with the agreement of all 4 players, play may be continued - but there can be no further referral to the Director
     
  3. A partner can request the correction of a mis-pointed card until a membership of the partnership has played to the next trick.  Previously the time limit was when a lead had been made to the next trick.
     
  4. At the end of play you can ask to see another players cards and can handle them with the permission of an opponent.  This is often useful when there is a claim and a revoke is suspected.  Less usefully it can precede deragotory comments about your partner's bidding/play
     
  5. There are several changes to the penalties when there is a call out of turn - I could never remember what the various laws were and I always referred to the Law Book.  Please do the same
     
  6. Lastly the rules concerning information given by a penalty card have been revised.  I read the old ones many times without much gain in understanding possibly I will do better this time; give me a year or two

Club Handbook and Director's Notes

The club first published a handbook in 1995.  It was written by our late Chairman Bill Cobbe.

It has now been revised and can be viewed and printed here.  As well as giving some general information it details some of the more important ethical and procedural aspects of the game.

Announcing and Alerting 2013
The new regulations are now in force.  Click for the EBUs summary document.

The main changes are:
  • One level minor suit openings which could be fewer than 3 cards are now announced (strong artificial is still alerted)
  • 2NT openings and the Stayman (4-card) and red-suit transfer responses are now announced - as with 1NT
  • Only transfer completions that deny 4 card support are alerted
  • An artificial  SUIT bid on the first round (starting with the opening bid) is alerted even if it is above 3NT.
I suggest you highlight a copy of the document with your own arrangements.
