Call the Director

As dummy you may not talk to the declarer.

The Bridge police are watching... Just DON’T do IT!

Cheating:   Cheating online is a serious offense, subject to the same penalties as cheating in live play. It is illegal to communicate with your partner during a hand via any means other than chat to the full table, to communicate with a kibitzer during the game,(I didn't think kibitzing was allowed) to play using an account that is not yours, to gain advanced knowledge of a deal, or to play in one event using multiple accounts(BBO IDs). Any accusation of cheating must be made privately to the director of the event, to the ACBL recorder, or to a reporting mechanism provided by the online platform ‌ If you suspect a pair of inappropriate actions, Click Here

♠  New ACBL Alert Procedures  ♣ 

  • "Transfers"  We can no longer just use the word transfer, we must include the suit to which we are transferring.
  • Traditional Support Doubles and Redoubles no longer need to be alerted.
  • Direct Cue Bids (with the exception of Michaels) must now be alerted.
  • Uncontested jump shifts no longer require an alert.
  • Instead of saying "could be short" when bidding 1 Club for example, you must now specify the number of cards in that suit.

          Example:  "Could be as short as one".

Look at page 35 of your January 2021 ACBL Bulletin for a complete listing of the changes.
