  • Do not touch your bidding box, nor any bidding cards, until your have determined your bid.
  • Letting your hand hover between a Bid and the Pass card gives your partner unauthorized information.  
  • When a bid card has been removed from the box it is considered played.
  • If making a jump bid, play the Stop card, make your bid then return the Stop card to the box. 
  • At the end of the auction, all bids must remain in place until the opening lead has been played and any explanations obtained.
