The Bridge Connection Is Reopening


Many of you are anxious to get back to playing in person.  It is of paramount importance to us that you do so safely!

For the health and safety of our Directors and players, The Bridge Connection is requiring all guests be temperature checked and present evidence of having received full vaccination to compete in live play.


We are also asking that you orally certify upon entry that you have not experienced any of the following symptoms in the last 72 hours. ..........

Go straight to jail!      Do not pass GO

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 ACBL Bulletin for a complete listing of the changes.
