New Rules


     In an uncontested auction, no jump shift (weak, strong or intermediate) needs to be alerted *A direct cue bid that is not Michaels needs to be alerted *Support doubles and redoubles no longer require an alert *An opening of 2c bid that does not meet the definition of very strong needs to be alerted (this applies to hands that have very good playing strength but lack the required HCP) *The announcement for transfers is now the suit being transferred to (1nt - 2h would not require the announcement of “transfer{ but rather the announcement of “spades”) *Instead of announcing “could be short” for a non-forcing minor suit opening that could contain fewer than three cards, you must say the minimum number of cards agreed upon by your partnership (ex. “Could be one”) *If your agreement routinely bypasses a four-card spade suit to bid a forcing or semi-forcing 1nt over a 1h opening, then you must add “Could have 4 spades” to the  “forcing” or “Semi-forcing” announcement.  (This mostly applies to pairs playing flannery) *At the end of the auction, the declaring sides needs to explain any Delayed Alerts and point out any control bids made during the auction without the opposing side needing to ask about them. To see all of the rule changes and explanations, too to and click on the Tournament tab.  Look for the green Alert Procedures tab.
