The Director is Your Friend

The director has many roles at the duplicate games. She/he sets up the movement of the game, sets up the bridge mates for scoring and passes out the boards to play. The director is available to answer questions about bidding and the play of the hand. When you call the director, it means you have a question. You are not accusing your opponents of any violation. The director will clarify your question at the table. After the director completes her/his ruling, play continues. If you still have questions or concerns, you may approach the director after the game. Frequently the director refers to his/her handbook and can explain the ruling. Further discussion can be handled by the ad hoc appeals committee. See GBC ByLaws (menu at left).
