Director's Corner - tip of the week

Did you know that

When the Director determines that a player’s hand originally contained more than 13 cards with another player holding fewer, and a player with an incorrect hand has made a call:

  1. If the Director judges that the deal can be corrected and played, then the deal may be so played with no change of call. At the end of play the Director may award an adjusted score.

  2. Otherwise when a call has been made with an incorrect number of cards, the Director shall award an adjusted score [see Law 12C1(b)] and may penalize an offender.

Click Director's Corner for more on the laws of the game.

Alerting and Announcing Rules

The EBU have made some changes to the Rules for Alerting and Announcing.

The main change that applies to us is that you no longer need to Announce a point count when Partner opens 2NT.

Please read these rules - quite a few of you are getting lazy about Alerting and Announcing!!
