Bob's Bits and Pieces

8/3/16 Claims

by Bob Gruber


A clear, concise claim is appreciated by all.  The other players don’t have to ponder needlessly and play is expedited. Unfortunately, far too often, the claim is inappropriate and play is prolonged past the point of just playing out the hand. And of course, you commonly hear, “Play it out! Let’s just play it out!!”


Law 68D is clear that once a claim or concession is made, playing it out is no longer an option.
