Supervised sessions are:
Monday afternoon -
 Supervised Play. No movement and no recorded scores, play at your own pace.  The hands that were played in the main session on Saturday are used so you can compare your results,
Wednesday evening.  This is a two-level session with
Superv
ised Play for all levels of beginners, including set hands for those who are just starting to learn the bidding, and Supervised Duplicate for those who are ready for the next step.
Thursday morning.

.

HOSTING & ARRIVING WITHOUT A PARTNER
HOSTING & ARRIVING WITHOUT A PARTNER

If you do not have a partner for an occasional session, a host is normally available.  Please check on the calendar.  If you do come on your own, please arrive at the Club at least 15 minutes before the start of play so that you can be partnered in good time with another single player or the host without causing delay to the start of play. 

The host is there to play with anyone who needs a partner.  All hosts for normal duplicate sessions need to be NGS 6+.  Please be kind and courteous to your partner and remember that it is important to find yourself a partner and not rely on the host system entirely.

UNDO POLICY ON BBO
UNDO POLICY ON BBO

For Supervised Games "Undos" are allowed at any time during bidding or play

For other games or tournaments "Undo" is not allowed during the play of the hand.
"Undo" is allowed for misclicks during bidding providing your partner has not bid i.e. only your Left Hand Opponent. This follows the EBU Rule 25 for F2F play. If there is doubt as to whether an Undo should be accepted, the TD should be called. You might like to consider turning on "Confirm Bids" and "Confirm Cards". This is found on BBO under your Account and then Settings.

We are also delighted to announce that a trophy is being generously donated and will be awarded to the winners of a new annual Swiss Pairs competition.

Marietta was a great supporter of both League and Swiss Pairs style of competitions as it gives all standards of players a chance to compete against players of similar standards.
