Changes to the Laws

As of September 2017, the new Laws of Duplicate Bridge are in effect. For the most part, there are only a few major changes from the previous Laws.
To help club directors quickly understand what has changed, the ACBL posted several resources in its website:

  1. A side-by-side comparison of the previous Laws to the current 2017 Laws
  2. A collection of 14 videos featuring ACBL TDs discussing the major changes
  3. A two-hour Video Seminar
  4. Additional resources


The Zoom Room is available Monday through Friday, 3:30 pm-5:30 pm (Eastern).

The Zoom Room will be closed from November 22-24 in observance of US Thanksgiving.
