You may sign up after but will be given the latest time available at the time of signup. There WILL NOT be any signups after the start of the tournament. You do not have to have a partner to sign up for the tournament as you will be partnered up with another player by the random draw.
  3. There will be a 100 team (200 players) maximum for the tournament. Must be paid prior to tournament in order to be within the maximum number of teams (No exceptions).
  4. Contestants must present their Northern Rewards card for verification prior to tournament play. Teams must be present 5 minutes prior to their specified start time. If the team/player is not present at the start of their round they will be disqualified from the tournament. The only exception will be in case of an emergency, than the team will be allowed to enter at a later time up until the last time slot of the first round completion.
  5. The tournament will be a double elimination tournament and each round will begin once the entire previous round has been complete.
  6. The tournament official will call the participant name(s) for each round. The team(s) will be drawn out for their seat arrangement prior to the start of the tournament by a Kewadin Casino licensed employee. There will be a bracket with all teams start times prior to the start of the tournament posted in the tournament area. Tournament officials will verify that contestants are in the correct seats before play begins.
  7. The team that will start the deal/game off will be determined by who gets the first Jack that has been flipped up after the cards have been shuffled. The deal will rotate clockwise and the cards must be shuffled properly by shuffling the deck at least three times. The dealer must offer the cut to the person to the right of them. The dealer must deal in groups of 2s or 3s. Note: If a card is flipped over during the deal/improperly dealt, the dealer must re deal (No points will be given). There will be no stealing of the deal.
  8. During play, you must clearly state your call. Example: If you call a loner, this must be clearly stated before a card is led. Partner MUST then place their cards face down on the table in front of them and is not allowed to look at the kitty but may collect the cards that have been played during the loner.
  9. Once a dealer buries a card, you cannot go alone.
  10. Dealer must discard a playing card before picking up a trump card.
  11. All cards should be played out. “SHOWING” will be allowed as long as the players agree at the beginning of their round. DO NOT toss your cards in/bury your cards into the pile until the round is concluded. Collect and stack all tricks neatly. Kewadin Casino officials suggest that each person takes in their own tricks unless your partner is going on a loner, then the partner that is not participating may pick up the tricks. By collecting own tricks, will minimize reneges.
