Other senior Tournament Directors may also be called on to assist if necessary


Barometer will be switched off throughout.


During the league, Kibitzing will be switched off.

During the play offs, if both teams agree, Kibitzers may be allowed subject to the proviso that the Director may, at his discretion, switch off Kibitzing.


During the league, teams may mutually agree to allow undos

During the play offs, undo will remain off. Players may call the director if they wish to undo in the event of an obvious, inadvertent misclick. Undos will be only allowed with the express permission of the director



Conventional Pyschs are disallowed in the event

Psychs are disallowed in the Silver Tournament

Psychs are allowed in the Gold Tournament subject to the proviso that an individual does not psych repeatedly and regularly. The opposing team is requested to bring all psychs to the TDs notice to prevent misuse of this facility.


Pre-empts and Light Openings

All pre-empts are expected to be announced along with a defined range.  The range needs to be reasonably defined (0-11 HCP is not a range).

Light openings with less than 8 HCPs, if part of system understanding are expected to be alerted 


Insufficient Boards

It is the responsibility of both teams to ensure that the match is set up using the correct number of boards. In the event that a match is set up for fewer boards that required, the rest of the boards shall be treated as scratched



Withdrawals are not allowed after a draw has been made. Teams withdrawing in this manner will not be allowed to play in the next event.

Post qualification, withdrawals are not permitted. Teams withdrawing will not be allowed to play in the next event.


Ethical Behavior

We expect all participants to adhere to the highest standards of ethical behavior during the play of this tournament. While we find it painful to issue such a statement, it is equally painful to admit that making such a statement has been felt necessary by the organisers. Players whose behavior was reported as suspect are being watched by the CTD as well as other senior directors of the country. Repeated misbehavior will lead to banning from BFH events. 

BFH has already started maintaining a list of players who are not welcome in their events. While we have no comments to make on these players per se, they are simply seen by us as vitiating the atmosphere of our events and are hence banned from participating.


Anything not covered here is at the discretion of the organizers. They may opt to consult with one or more senior bridge players / organizers, but their decision will be final and binding in all respects
