- Some hand analyses by various pros is provided by TheCommonGame.
- Most important; players will have access to the bridge hands just played after the game (in addition to a limited print out of the hands); also see what others did in each board.

Respect for Others
Our club have many players from all around and they are players with various type of medical conditions that may not be apparent to other players, such as problems with scents and problems with high pitch sounds.
We would like all the players have an enjoyable time at our games, so please respect other players and avoid things such as card snapping and wearing strong perfume.
We appreciate your support. Thank you
New Laws of Duplicate Bridge
The Laws of Duplicate Bridge 2017 are effective in the ACBL beginning Sept. 25, 2017. The new Laws are available online at acbl.org and in printed form, available from Baron Barclay Bridge Supply. Exceptions to the new Laws, adopted by the ACBL Board, are no longer available in the printed version; they are available on the website at www.acbl.org/lawsoptions.
STOP card tossed from bidding boxes
After roughly two decades of use, the oft-controversial STOP card found in most ACBL bidding boxes will soon be missing from ACBL tournaments.
During July 2017 meetings in Toronto, the ACBL Board of Directors eliminated the STOP card for sanctioned tournaments beginning after January 1, 2018. ACBL-affiliated clubs are not required to remove the STOP card from bidding boxes, but they are encouraged to do so.
