Seite 5 - The winners of the rubber gain two points (commonly called the rubber points), in addition to the value of their games. 10. Should the rubber have consisted of three games, the value of the losers' game is deducted from the gross number of points gained by their opponents.
Seite 17 - Should the dealer place the last (/'. e., the trump) card, face downwards, on his own, or any other pack. III. Should the trump card not come in its regular order to the dealer ; but he does not lose his deal if the pack be proved imperfect. IV. Should a player have fourteen cards, and either of the other three less than thirteen.
Seite 36 - Your cards are played, and before, but not after they are touched for the purpose of gathering them together, may demand that the cards be placed before their respective players.
Seite 30 - Is when a player, holding one or more cards of the suit led, plays a card of a different suit.
Seite 32 - ... a card of the suit which he has renounced ; should the question be asked before the trick is turned and quitted, subsequent turning and quitting does not establish the revoke, and the error may be corrected, unless the question be answered in the negative, or unless the revoking player or his partner have led or played to the following trick.
Seite 19 - If a pack, during or after a rubber, be proved incorrect or imperfect, such proof does not alter any past score, game, or rubber : that hand in which the imperfection was detected is null and void ; the dealer deals again.
Seite 42 - It is unfair to revoke purposely; having made a revoke, a player is not justified in making a second in order to conceal the first. Until the players have made such bets as they wish, bets should not be made with bystanders. Bystanders should make no remark, neither should they by word or gesture give any intimation of the state of the game until concluded and scored, nor should they walk round the table to look at the different hands.
Seite 8 - ... 19. Three players cutting cards of equal value cut again; should the. fourth (or remaining) card be the highest, the two lowest of the new cut are partners, the lower of those two the dealer ; should the fourth card be the lowest, the two highest are partners, the original lowest the dealer.
Seite 31 - A revoke is established, if the trick in which it occur be turned and quitted, ie, the hand removed from that trick after it has been turned face downwards on the table — or if either the revoking player or his partner, whether in his right turn or otherwise, lead or play to the following trick.
Seite 14 - The player on the dealer's right cuts the pack, and, in dividing it, must not leave fewer than four cards in either packet; if in cutting or in replacing one of the two packets a card be exposed, or if there be any confusion of the cards, or a doubt as to the exact place in which the pack was divided, there must be a fresh cut.
