The Larsky Cup

The Larsky Cup is Kent's most important Pairs Competition. This year any Bridge club can hold a qualifying heat and the committee has chosen 17 January for this event. The heat is optional and there will be no extra charge to members. Any pair scoring 50% will be eligible to compete in the semi-final stage. The two nearest venues for the semi-finals are Tunbridge Wells on 14 February and Maidstone on 8 February. Further details can be found on the KCBA website.

 

Main changes to EBU Laws effective August 2017

1. When a claim is made, if all players are not in agreement, play is suspended and the Director must be called.

2. Information from a Penalty Card is "unauthorised information" and must not be used unfairly. If the non-offending side feel they have been damaged as a result, the Director may adjust the score.

3. When an insufficient bid or call out of turn is made, if the player makes a comparable bid, there is no rectification. The player's partner may then proceed to bid as normal. When an offending player’s call is withdrawn and it is not replaced by a comparable call, then if he becomes a defender declarer may, at the offender’s partner’s first turn to lead (which may be the opening lead) prohibit offender’s partner from leading any (one) suit which has not been specified in the legal auction by the offender. Such prohibition continues for as long as the offender’s partner retains the lead.

4. Players must be more explicit in their explanations. for example, Benji, Strong 2's or artificial minor suit openings. 

5. Strong bids must guarantee at least four cards in the bid suit and at least 16 points, or 12 points and five controls (2 for an Ace, 1 for a King).

6. Both players must agree their system so that opponents are aware of their style.

As always, please call the Director in any case of uncertainty.
