Rules and Regulations

These “Rules and Regulations” apply for the 2017-2018 season.

1. It is suggested that all matches take place in a bridge club. When playing in a bridge club, starting times should coincide with the club’s regular-session game times or at any other time agreed between captains and the club. Please inform the bridge club of your plan to go play at their club.

2. The time allowed for a match is 3h15 minutes. It should never exceed the end of the regular game of the club by more than 15 minutes.

3. Players’ tardiness will result in 3-IMP penalties for the first 15 minute delay and each 10 minutes period thereafter. A match will be lost by default if the offending team is not complete after 45 minutes.

4. If a team does not show up or arrives more than 45 minutes after starting time, it will loose by default and be given a score of zero. Accordingly, the ready-to-play team will receive 100 points in the standings. In return, the team present will receive the highest score between their own average or the average of the IMPs granted by the team that did not show up.

5. The scale of 50 is used. The winning team adds 50 IMPs to its net IMPs obtained for its match. The losing team is awarded the difference to total 100. A victory by 50 IMPs and more results in a maximum of 100 points in the ranking.

6. The captain of the winning team must report the result to mafourcaudot@sympatico.ca by identifying the number of IMPs won by each team or the difference in IMPs.

7. How a match takes place:

a. Each match consists of 2 rounds of 13 boards.

b. Toss and loss. The losing team takes place first, and the winning team sits down thereafter, choosing its opponents.

c. At the end of the 1st round, the team that accumulates the fewest points decides the opponents it meets in the second round.

8. The club director will make the rulings in accordance with the ACBL Laws and Regulations. If the players wish to appeal the decision of the director, AND the director cannot form a committee considering the players present at the club, the following procedure applies: the director reports the hand and the relevant details to the team leader of 4, who will be responsible for forming a committee at a later date for a decision to be made.

9. The season schedule calls for every team to play one match every 15 days.

a. You can get ahead, by try above all to avoid delays.

b. The schedule provides for a sequence of matches to follow, but two captains can advance the schedule if both teams agree.

c. The regular season is scheduled to end on May 1, 2017. A delay of four weeks will be granted to latecomers to play all games. A score of zero will be awarded to both teams if the games are not played on that date. As from May 1st, if one of the two teams proposes a date to play the match and the other refuses without making a counter-offer, the second has zero and the first wins the best result of its average of the season or the average awarded by the other team. If the counter-offer is refused, both teams have a score of zero. Any offer and counter-offer shall be for at least 48 hours.

10. Composition of the teams: 

a. Each team can have up to 8 players.

b. Any change during the season must be done with the approval of the person responsible for the “Teams of 4” competition, Marc-André FOURCAUDOT, who will consult the other captains before making a decision.

c. A member of a team may not play for another team as a substitute except on prior approval by the opposing captain.

d. A team is ranked COMPETITION if the team’s average masterpoints in below 3000 as of October 1st, 2017.

e.  The fees for each team is 150$, payable before December 1st, 2017.

11. Playing and defenses systems must respect the guide of conventions that are permitted at the CNTC A. A written defense may be required for certain agreements.
http://cbf.ca/events/canadian-bridge-championships/open-teams-flt-a/ (page 5).

12. Category OPEN

a. The winning team qualifies directly for the final against Toronto. The teams that finished 2nd and 3rd play the semi-finals, and the winning team is the second finalist of the MBL in the match against Toronto.

b. The two finalists teams play the annual 100-boards match against Toronto, for which a portion of the expenses are subsidized by the MBL.

c. In case of a tie in the standings, the result of the match played between the two respective teams determines the rank.

d. The playoffs are 52 boards.

e. If a team in the COMPETITION category finishes amongst the first 3 teams at the end of the regular matches of the season, that team shall choose to play the final in the COMPETITION category OR the OPEN category. 

13. The top two (2) teams of the COMPETITION category in the regular season will compete in the COMPETITION Final.

a. The winning team will receive free entries for the next Can-Am, four (4) per day, non-transferable to another day or to a non-team player.

b. The COMPETITION Final (52 boards) must be played before the Can-Am, therefore before August 1, 2018.
