Patience & Teaching

Trying to teach or give advice during a game is not effective and might even be seen as a violation of ACBL rules (see Law 74.A.2, Etiquette of Word and Action: A player should carefully avoid any remark or action that might cause annoyance or embarrassment to another player or might interfere with the enjoyment of the game.)

  • Don't teach at the table; waiting until the game is over is much more effective
  • Giving advice during the game is bad strategy, typically unwanted and could easily be wrong
  • Talking about a board/result often reaveals details of the board to other players
  • Even well-meaning advice might be taken as criticism, which is unethical, rude and a violation of the Laws

Who We Are: We are seven bridge clubs authorized within Unit 550. We host ACBL-sanctioned bridge games every day at the SCBC. Our goal is to give you the best bridge playing environment.

Games: There are daily and evening games open to players of all levels with some games reserved for novice and/or intermediate players. Some games feature an optional meal at a nominal cost. If you need information about a game or a partner, please contact any one of us listed below, call us at the SCBC, or send us an email at scbc.director@gmail.com.
