BRIDGE TOPICS

“Director, Please”


Duplicate bridge is a sport, and sports have rules. The rules ensure that the game is fair for everyone. You’re not expected to memorize the entire “Laws of Duplicate Contract Bridge,” but don’t hesitate to politely call the director to your table if you think there has been an irregularity. Never be intimidated when the director is called because of something you might have done.

When the Director comes to the table the initial dialog is strictly between the Director and the person who called him/her.  If the Director requires additional information or confirmation from someone else at the table, he or she will ask. A good director will assess the situation and present a solution in a manner that doesn’t embarrass or offend anyone. Do players always agree with the director? Does LeBron James always agree with the referee? Accept rulings with grace and play on!
