MEMBER RULES



1. All members and staff will be treated with dignity and respect!!!

2. If you have any problems within a game please contact the host in the lobby asking them to come to your table. Please keep all drama out of the lobby!!

3. Teams must be set 5 minutes before tourney time and the other team member has 2 minutes before tourney time to jump, if both are not in 2 minutes before tourney time the team will be pulled from the tourney. The member that did jump can then jump auto.

4. In the twisted games check the rules for the games on the tourney tab before you jump or on the tourney page.

5. Any questions, concerns, or suggestions please contact one of your admin staff.

6. There is to be no discussion of cheating at the tables or in the lobby. After the tour contact an admin and one of us will sit on the table next time the team plays...just remember, some are slower than others and we all hit each other once in a while. That does not always mean cheating. Thanks!

7. The one hand rule...after the the last hand is called and both teams are over 190, there will be a one more hand extension.

8. If a player at the table needs a BRB while playing, please call for a sub in the lobby.

9. The player at the table only receives one extension, if the player doesn't return within that first extension, DO NOT extend again stand the player, and report in lobby a sub is needed.

10. Finally, drama in the lobby is not tolerated. All issues must be resolved at a table with the host or an admin present. Action will be taken if any member does not respect this rule.


MELDING BIDDING BASICS


You should only meld bid on the first bid of each hand.

1. If you open with a bid of 50, you are telling your ptnr you either have a run or you are giving a "save bid", so your partner is not stuck without a ring.

2. Generally, figure adding 1 point for every 10 points of meld in your hand. Your partner can presume you have 10 points with an opening bid of 50

3. If you have aces in each suit, bid 51 on opening bid only if you are the first bidder.

4. Remember that a meld bid is the actual meld you can show on the board. So do NOT include any run in that meld bid.

5. If you are the first bidder bid 59 if you have double aces (2 aces in each suit); this tells your partner to bid in case you have no ring and u can always rebid if u want the bid.

6. If you have a double run bid 75 first bid to let partner know what you have.

7. As a rule of thumb, counting your entire meld with run and figuring 10 points in your partner's hand, and taking 20 points will be a good way to know what your maximum bid should be.

JUMP BIDS

When you are not the first bidder but want to let your partner know you have big meld but dont want the bid, "jump" at least 10 points over the previous bid to you.

OTHER BASIC PLAYS

1. Playing an ace on your partner's ace means you have all the other aces in that suit or are very short-suited.


DON'T BE AFRAID TO LEAD TRUMP, THERE ARE ONLY 20 CARDS IN A SUIT, SO KEEPING COUNT IS A GOOD IDEA.
