Tournaments
1) Tardiness if posted in the rules you can be dropped no matter when you register if not online and the host is ready to start and has to get even 2) The 3 59 sec Rule must be added and to my understanding it goes like this...If you get three 59 seconds in the same round you can replace that player with a sub for the rest of that Tourney.....I also Believe that we Agreed that the Three 59 second Infraction had to be Copied and Pasted and sent to the Director who is Hosting the Tourney (know word of the mouth must have proof) This also needs to be Added if the player Refuse to give up the Seat, the Host can ask the table Maker to Boot that Player from the Table/if the Three 59 sec is on the Table Maker/Host Only will have the Right to Remake Table after that hand and Continue on with the Tourney Manually 3) Most of this is Cover Under # 6 just needs tweaked a little so the Directors are on the same Page.... Once the Assignments are sent out table must be made and game started before the posted forfeit is up. Example (Billy table#1.1 ff at 1:05 once the clock clicks 1:06 it's a forfeit if you are not seated and game hasn't started, players will get the full minute of the posted time which is 1:05 4) I also think we Agreed that Gifts will be Maxed Out at 2 Games with the Exception of Odds Limited to 3 games 5) Break Down TD'S Hosting Procedures of the Quota's, and Playing in The Tourneys they are Hosting, who Plays before them ,and Host can only play if the Tourney is less than 26 Players BID LEAGUE STANDARD RULES – EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1, 2016 1.

Hands: A number of hands are played and the teams with the best score after the # of hands have been completed wins. b. 2 out of 3: Usually 7 and 7 tourney where the first player to win two games is declared the winner. The 2 set rule: allows a team only two sets per game. c. No Trump: Only No trump bids are allowed can be high/low bid. Trump bids are consider a bad bid. If a player is booted and the computer has last bid the returning player must allow the computer to play the hand. The player may sit after the computer has played the first 8 cards. If a player is booted and the computer bids 3 hi or low dealer has to bid 3NO or it will be considered a bad bid. d. All Trumps: Only high/low bids trump bids are allowed a No trump is consider a bad bid. e. Red or Black Cards: Players can bid trump bid or no bids. All trump bids must be in the correct color and all no bids must lead with the correct color. f. Follow the Leader: The first bid of each hand sets the rules for that hand only. If first bid is no trump all bids that hand must be no trump. If first bid is high or low all bids that hand must be hi/lo. g. Points: When a player makes or sets a bid they receive points. Computer will post points after each hand. Odds are added to points. h. Cumulative Points: Similar to points but only the amount of bid is counted odds do not apply. i. 1-vs-1: 1 player per team the computer plays the other hand no subs are ever allowed. j. Double Elimination: You have to lose two matches before you are eliminated. After you lose your first match, your team then moves into the lower bracket. You continue playing matches in that lower bracket until you receive your second loss, at which point you are out of the tournament. k. Swiss: Every player plays in every round regardless of their match results. (A player may withdraw from the tournament after any round if they no longer wish to compete). Each win counts as one (1) point, and each loss counts as zero (0) points. 9. TABLE RULES/SETTINGS/INSTRUCTIONS: a. TABLE SETTINGS: (1) RISE N FLY (RNF) SETTINGS: - On the "FEATURE TAB" click "CUSTOM" - Select "AS - AUTO SET" and "RNF-RISE & FLY" - On the "RULES TAB" select "NSK - NO SHOW KITTY" (Unless it’s a show kitty tourney then you would not select anything.) - Next for BIDDING STYLE select "HALF STEPPING (NOT PROGRESSIVE)" or PROGRESSIVE depending on what the tourney rules indicate. (2) 7 IN/7OUT (7/7) SETTINGS: - On the "FEATURE TAB" click "CUSTOM" - Select "AS - AUTO SET" - On the "RULES TAB" select "NSK - NO SHOW KITTY" (Unless it’s a show kitty tourney then you would not select anything.) - Next for BIDDING STYLE select "HALF STEPPING (NOT PROGRESSIVE)" or PROGRESSIVE depending on what the tourney rules indicate. (3) Three 59 sec Rule: If a player gets three 59 seconds in the same round. Players on that table can request a sub for the player. The hosting TD will sub or find a sub if possible to allow that player to reboot in hopes of speeding up his/her computer. The player with the 59 seconds must stand to allow the sub to sit. If player refuses, the Table Maker/Host Only will have the Right to Remake Table after that hand and Continue on with the Tourney Manually 10. REMAKING TABLES RULES: a. IF a player sits in the wrong seat MAKE THE TABLE OVER b. IF a table maker bids before 59 seconds and no opponent is allowed to bid MAKE THE TABLE OVER. Table should be remade within the 5 min time limit of assignment because one player did not get a chance to bid. As long as one player of each team is allowed to bid table is good. c. IF a table is made wrong, i.e. SHOW KITTY, PROGRESSIVE OR NOT PROGRESSIVE table settings are wrong, then remake within the 5 min time limit of assignment. If a BID IS MADE OR SET, THE GAME IS VALID. (VALID=Hand Counts). Keep score manually on next table. d. IF a table is made wrong but it does not affect the game. Keep score manual. Table should be remade only if kitty is showing in a no show kitty or vice versa tourney and table is set for progressive when the bidding is not progressive. e. A card must be played on a table before a penalty can be applied 11. BAD BIDS: a. The rules listed on each tourney page must be followed regardless of table settings. b. A bad bid must be called before the caller plays a card on that hand is played. c. The opponents must call a bad bid, NOT the team committing the bad bid. Opponents cannot be forced to take a bad bid d. Rise-n-Fly: IF tourney rules are PROGRESSIVE and the table is set for NOT PROGRESSIVE and a bad bid is committed, the BAD BID penalty applies and the hand counts. BAD BID PENALTY = 1 GAME to the opponents (unless tourney rules state differently). e. 7 IN/7 Out: IF a Team commits a BAD BID, they will go in the hole for that amount or the minimum bid amount. The Team should set themselves to keep the score correct. EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE: IF minimum bid is 4 and a player BIDS a 3HI or 3LO, you will SUBTRACT -4 from your score. If you BID a 3NO, then SUBTRACT -6 from your score. A NO BID is DOUBLE points. Keep the score manually if this exception occurs. EXAMPLE: TEAM A is 6 on board & TEAM B is 1 on board. TEAM A makes a BAD BID of 3HI, the score will be as follows: TEAM A = 2 TEAM B = 1 f. LAST HAND RULE: When the tourney is # of hands, if a BAD BID is made by the team that's ahead which causes the match to be over (not the tie breaker), the above penalty is applied and that hand is played over. 12.
