Face to Face Club Protocols

After two years of online play the following are some protocols you might want to review as you head back to the club for in person play. 

1. When you take your cards from the board be sure to count them before you look at them.
2. When dummy is laid down the trump suit is placed on the right. In notrump, usually spades are placed on the right.
3. Play your cards and your bids close to your edge of the table. If you are playing the dummy hand the card played should be at the edge of the table behind the dummy.
No leaning or elbows. Do not SNAP yourcards.
4. The only cards you touch are your own. Only North should touch the boards unless North has asked someone else to move them.
5. Once the dummy is placed on the table it should not be rearranged unless Declarerasks. Resist the urge to tidy up.
6. You are only allowed to ‘re-fan’ your cards once.
7. Play and bid in turn and ‘in tempo’.
8. Dummy must not touch a card until asked. Nor can Dummy give any indication of a card that should be played.
9. Dummy may tell Declarer from which side of the table the play should start. Eg. “You’re in your hand.” “You’re on the board.”
10. Leave the cards on the table until everyone agrees on the outcome then shuffle and put them away before you record the score.
11. Save discussion about the hand just played until the end of the round. Be mindful of the opposition. They may not want to hear how brilliant your lead nor how insightful the
finesse was.
12. Avoid any signals from which your partner could gain ‘unauthorized information’. Ie. No groaning, heavy breathing or sighing at the table.
13. Do not snap your cards. This can be very uncomfortable for anyone wearing hearing devices.
14. When bidding: 1. Decide on your bid. 2. Place the bidding card on the table. 3. Donot hesitate or change your bid. 4. If you have made an error in the bidding process, call the director at the end of the biddingso that reparations may be made to the opponents.
15. When in doubt call the director. The director is present to make sure that the game is fair for everyone. It is not a punishment to have the director called to the table.
