  BCOH Policy on Psychic Bids

Psychic bids

A psychic bid is a bid in bridge that grossly misstates the power and/or suit lengths of one's hand. It is used deliberately to deceive the opponents.

Although Psychic bids are legal by the ACBL as long as they are not recognized by their partner,  if  for a partnership it is a consistent pattern,  it needs to be noted on their convention card.

However, as has been tradition at BCOH, friendly play is paramount.  Although there has been an unwritten policy about psychic bids, the Board of Directors have now formally ruled that psychic bids are not consistent with BCOH values and are prohibited at the BCOH club games.   The director will adjust the score accordingly.
