Director's Corner

There are procedures in duplicate bridge that everyone should develop for fair play for all. Here are some of those procedures.

1. Have a fully filled out convention card with your current partner. Players who play with different partners often keep the filled out convention card for future use and to review before the game.

2. Avoid slow play.

3. Allow your bid to speak for itself. Additional body language, comments, dropping or slamming your bid on the table, etc. can cause you to receive a director call and a possible score adjustment.
