Welcome to The Wachusett Bridge Club

Our schedule of games has now been updated through the end of February 2018.

NEW LAW 23: COMPARABLE CALLS

Now you’ve done it! You made a call out of turn or you’ve made an insufficient bid.  Hey, it happens. But the rules have changed on what happens next, and it’s important that you understand these changes.

If the person whose turn it actually is to bid accepts your call out of turn (unlikely), then everything proceeds normally. Otherwise, I’ll get called to your table and will cancel your call out of turn. I’ll also advise you that at your next proper turn you must: (1) make a call which has a similar meaning to your original call; (2) make a call which defines a subset of the possible meanings of the original call, or; (3) make a call which has the same purpose as the original call (e.g. an asking bid).

That’s all the advice I can give, and whether or not your call is “comparable” is up to me as Director. If so, everything once again proceeds as normal. If not, your partner will be barred for ONE round of bidding for calls out of turn, and will be barred for the entire auction in the case of non-comparable calls after insufficient bids.

Since the limited advice which I am allowed to give at the table sounds sort of like I’m speaking Klingon, and probably registers in your mind as such when you’ve just committed an irregularity, I’m putting a more detailed discussion under the Lessons tab (at left) to help you better understand your options.
