Bridge & other card games/Dealing out of turn
What is the correct procedure if someone deals out of turn in contract bridge, and the error is discovered before bidding begins? Redeal in right order? Have correct dealer bid first? Laugh it off and keep playing? Thanks
According to Law 9
If a player deals out of turn, and attention is not drawn to the error before the last card has been dealt, the deal stands as though it had been in turn, the player who dealt the cards is the dealer (he makes the first call), and the player who missed his turn to deal has no redress; and the rotation continues as though the deal had been in turn.
