Unsolicited Advice

STAC Week: December 10- December 13. Silver points.

Our bridge club enjoys a great many friendly players eager to speed the advancement of newer players to the game of Bridge. However, no player should offer tips, suggestions, criticism or lessons unless specifically asked to do so.

Although the intent is to be supportive and helpful - unsolicited advice has the effect of making others feel small. Asking if someone else is a novice or a beginner (or referring to someone as a novice or a beginner) also has this effect and is not to be done at our club. We let players play and improve at their own pace.
