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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
An online quiz is available which you can use to consolidate your skills: download it here.
