Conduct and Etiquette
This is the full text of Law 74, which you may have to draw to the attention of some players.
A. Proper Attitude
As a matter of courtesy a player should refrain from :
C. Violations of Procedure
The following are examples of violations of procedure:
A Tournament Director is entitled to penalise players who breach Law 74 (under Law 90). This Law applies to many situations, most of which are obvious. One must be courteous to partner, opponents and the TD. You must not embarrass or annoy people nor interfere with their enjoyment of the game.
However, Law 74 also applies in situations which are less obvious - for example SLOW PLAY. Playing too slowly is against the Laws of Bridge. It is discourteous and stops other players enjoying the game. Carefully examine your own habits before reprimanding others for slow play. Is your table often the last to finish? Do people often ask you for boards while you are playing the last hand? If your are E/W is the next table always waiting for you?
