Laws of On Line Bridge published by the WBF in 2001

(changes only, marked vs. relevant subsections of Laws of Duplicate Contract Bridge 1997)


Law 73 - Communication

A. Proper Communication between Partners
  1. How Effected
  Communication between partners during the auction and play shall be effected only by means of the calls and plays themselves.*
New Footnote to Law 73A1 *While seated for play during a session, partners must not employ any means to effect private communication with one another.
  2. Correct Manner for Calls and Plays
    Calls and plays should be made without special emphasis, mannerism or inflection, and without undue hesitation or haste (however, sponsoring organisations may require mandatory pauses, as on the first round of auction, or after a skip-bid warning, or on the first trick).
