Players in the 4th Friday Marathon should arrive by 12:10 p.m. with play beginning at 12:30 p.m. Each session of play consists of three (3) rounds of either 8 or 10 hands each, except that leaders may choose other rotation methods (e.g., 4 rounds of 6 hands each). Leaders may use discretion on how to handle uneven tables. (They can call for bidders or call for a sit-out, giving 1500 points to pairs sitting out for a round.) A maximum of one (1) hour of time is allowed to play each round. Any delayed play (late play) will take place after the third round at the end of play.
