Avoid Slow Play

Duplicate Bridge is a timed event and therefore it is important thateveryone maintains the same pace. Slow play disrupts the game. Everyone should make an effort to finish each round on time. The ACBL does not allow late plays at sectional, regional or national tournaments. In fact, you may not start a new board if the round has been called.



How to speed up the game?

  • Make the opening lead before your write down the contract. Try it, it works.

  • Avoid post mortems at the table. Simply circle the board, make a note in your score card and discuss the board after the session

Tournament directors will warn slow pairs. If they are consistently slow, then penalties may be enforced. On the 2nd warning by the director, the offending pair will receive an average minus on the board and the opponents will receive an average plus. Consistent slow play may also result in a procedural penalty -- meaning that the offending pair may receive a ¼ of a board matchpoint penalty.

Lend a Helping Hand

Your assistance please!


At the end of the session it would help immensely if you would:

  • Dispose of any clutter left at the table;
  • Take all coffee cups into the kitchen area;
  • Push your chairs under the table; and
  • Remember to use the recycle bins, as appropriate.

Thanks for giving us a helping hand! smiley
