In order to properly enforce "Zero Tolerance", players MUST report an infraction WHEN it occurs. ACBL is strictly enforcing this policy and we intend to do so also  There will be no warning and a 1/4 board penalty if anyone is reported to be rude at the table. If repeated sanctions will be issued. 

We want all players to feel comfortable and enjoy their game.  If you are made to feel uncomfortable during play, please notify the Director and let her/him make a ruling.

PARTNERSHIP RULES

†††††††††††††

1. Unless you are being paid to teach, donít give lessons.
2. Never say anything to your partner unless you would want him or her to say the same to you.
3. Donít ďresultĒ (criticize your partner for a normal action just because it didn't work this time).
4. Think twice before discussing the hand you just played. If you canít wait, be discreet.
5. Remember: You and your partner are on the same side and he or she wants to win as much as you do.
6. If you feel the urge to be nasty, sarcastic, critical or loud, excuse yourself and take a walk.
7. If there is time between hands do not discuss bridge.
8. If you choose to ask another player about a disaster, ask about your hand, not your partners.
9. Donít criticize your partner in public.
10. Remember that bridge is only a card game.
11. Make sure both of you have a good time.
12. Trust your partner; donít assume he or she made a mistake.
13. Although it may be unfashionable, it really is ok to be pleasant to a partner you live with.
14. Think before verbally analyzing a hand. Donít embarrass yourself with an inaccurate comment.
15. When you choose to play bridge with someone, itís not fair to get upset if he or she does not play perfectly.
16. Never side with an opponent against your partner. Try to support him or her.
17. If you think your too good for your partner and do not enjoy playing bridge with him or her, do everyone a favor and play with someone else. That is much better than being a martyr. However, be careful before burning bridges.
18. Learn your partnerís style, regardless about how you feel about it. Donít expect your partner to bid exactly as you would. When your partner bids, consider what he or she will have, not what you would have.
19. Picture problems from your partnerís point of view. Seek the bid or play that makes his or her life easier.
20. Sympathize with your partner if he or she makes a mistake. Let your partner know that you like him or her, and always root for him or her 100 percent.
