New Laws 2017

The World Bridge Federation updates the Laws of Duplicate Bridge every ten years. The latest edition has been published this summer and the EBU will be applying the new Laws in its events from the 1st August 2017. Clubs in England are required to introduce the 2017 Laws by the end of September, which will allow more time for directors and players to get up to speed with the changes.

In terms of everyday play the key changes with which you need to be most familiar relate to (1) the introduction of the concept of a “Comparable Call” and the implications for proceeding after an Insufficient Bid or a Call out of Turn (incl subsequent lead penalties); (2) Claims and concessions; (3) when the wrong players sit down at a table and play the wrong boards. However there are, as you would expect, a number of minor adjustments in other areas. Of course it will take time for us all to become used to these changes, but you will find that the role of the director should overall have been made a bit easier and players will more often be able to continue play with a minimum of disruption.

EBED has prepared a set of training materials suitable for a ½ day course to explain the changes and provide some practical examples and simulations of how they would apply. Information about these courses can be found on our website. http://www.ebedcio.org.uk/td-training  Additional courses will be added as soon as dates and venues are confirmed. Please encourage your club/county committee to consider hosting one of these sessions – they are welcome to contact me for additional information (see email address below).

Midweek during the Summer Meeting in Eastbourne there will be a range of director and EBUScore training courses available, including a day (Friday 11th August) on the impact of the new Laws. Similarly there will be a new Laws training seminar at the EBU headquarters in Aylesbury on 14th September. If you would like to come, please send me an email at the address given below.

Camberley, Caterham and Woking Bridge clubs are also organising their own training sessions, which are open to non members – and you may be able to find out more information in those cases through the club websites. If not I would be pleased to offer further advice - please email me at richard@ebedcio.org.uk

All EBU directors have been trained already on the Laws and can be contacted to provide further advice. http://www.ebu.co.uk/laws-and-ethics/td-list

As well as the ½ day seminars on the new Laws, EBED also runs the following courses

  • Club Director Training (previously 4 days, now 3 days)
  • 'How to Run a club Duplicate' (addresses the organisational aspects rather than how to give rulings)
  • ½- or full-day general 'refresher' courses on a bespoke basis

An online quiz is available which you can use to consolidate your skills: download it here.

 Cafe Bridge Guildford

Congratulations to the 240 players and to the staff of 15 restaurants for creating such a wonderful day in Guildford.

An enormous thank you to Lynn Paynter who has tirelessly given her time over several months to create the best Cafe Bridge in the UK.

Lynn and her team of volunteer helpers, with specific mention and thanks to Jo Owens and Valerie Taylor, have raised the enormous amount of £5,300 for three wonderful charities.

£2,500 for Breast Cancer Now, £2,500 for LinkAble and £300 for Ebussi.

Victor, our Director, who is the world's expert on Directing and Scoring Cafe Bridge events was a bit scared beforehand, since there were a lot of venues for the number of players, the map area was quite large, new venues might turn out to have bad phone reception and we had a large number of new scorers.

 As it turned out, none of Victor's fears materialized.  Maybe there are now more experienced people whom the new scorers can ask for help than in past years. The lead players that Lynn chose should also take some credit for this technical and logistical achievement. A big thank you to Caroline Bottoms, Sasha Chamberlain our scorers and Trevor who briefed all the players in the use of the incredible Brian App.

Congratulations to all the players and the winners of the 2017 Cafe Bridge, Jerry Woolf and Reggie Lewis, who had volunteered to be on the reserve list and were needed on the day.

Cafe Bridge lives on thanks to Lynn, who can now sleep at night knowing it was superbly organised.
