Welcome to Coolmine Bridge Club
Laws of Duplicate Bridge 2017

Want to view the updated Laws of Duplicate Bridge? Click here.

John Crimmins has offered to keep us well informed on a phased basis of new developments in relation to these laws. CBC wishes to thank him for this kind gesture.

 

New Laws - Updates by John Crimmins

Over the next few weeks John will present briefly some of the key law changes by the WBF and emphasis by the CBAI, as they will affect all players.

Some elements may not be as rigidly implemented on a club night, however the laws are fixed and ratifications are required where appropriate.

I would suggest that one of the ways that the regular club member will become acquainted with the new changes is to summon the Tournament Director for any infringement that occurs at the table.

Relevant Laws:- 23.Comparable Call; 26.Call Withdrawn, Lead Restrictions 16.Authorized And Unauthorized Information
