Local Bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin

More on Bridge ethics
Last time we began to look at ethical behavior at the bridge table.
The other two pieces not mentioned are these.  1. Be sure you and partner are on the same page when it comes to conventions used in your play.  Discuss with partner before play begins which conventions you will use in play.  This avoids problems for you and opponents.  2. If during bidding, misinformation is given either by failures to alert or in giving the wrong explanation of your partnership agreement, declarer is committed to correcting those mistakes before the opening lead is made.  The other piece of this correction could be a director call if you feel your side has been disadvantaged by being “shut out” of the bidding by that misinformation.  You may be entitled to an adjusted score after the fact.  By clarifying agreements with partner before play, miscommunications can be avoided.
