LEAGUE RULES
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT LEAGUES HAVE BEEN UPDATED FEB 1ST, 2019

FULL LEAGUE RULES
1.)The Number 1 Rule in our room is to have fun and relax! Be respectful to all in lobby and at tables. We are Adults there is no reason to be disrespectful. We are all here to enjoy ourselves.

2.) We ask that members always use good sportsmanship when playing in league games and tournaments. We would appreciate saying Good Luck (gl) Good Hand (gh) Good Game (gg). Good sportsmanship also includes finishing any game that you start. Repeated issues of bad sportsmanship, including leaving games when losing, will result in being boxed for 3 days.

3.) Your league ID must match your Safe Harbor ID. You cannot play in a tournament if these are not the same. If it is noticed after a tournament has begun, a staff member will get a hold of you so that you can change your league ID immediately after the current tournament is over. You will not be allowed to join any further tournaments until this has been taken care of. If you need help with changing your league ID, please contact an Admin and we can help change it with you.

4.) If you are a member in the same household or workplace where you play, you must notify Admin. Please submit ladder names.
Members of the same household may not play at the same table unless assigned to opp each other in a tourney.

5.) Disrespect to staff and/or players is not tolerated.
Everyone comes in to relax and to play, no one wants to listen to bickering and drama. There is NO harassing of members or staff, NO cursing, NO fighting, NO disruptive behavior of any kind. Disruptive and disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated. If you have a problem with someone, PLEASE TAKE IT PRIVATE. Creating a scene in the lobby is NOT ACCEPTABLE, if you have a problem please message an Admin, and we will discuss this issue with you. If you are asked to drop it from the lobby and continue you will be boxed 3 days minimum.

While IM's can be private, they are not always. Some members can and will send Log Chats to Admins. When this happens, this means that your private conversation is no longer private. Understand that when you are in IM's you are still expected to be respectful.

6.)Your First Meld must be the required cards for that hand/game in the first meld that hits the table.

7.) DO NOT at any time harass or attack any player on this league, pm's, or at the tables! This will not only get you booted from the lobby but may result in boxing. No one likes being attacked. If this happens please ask for an Admin and let them handle the situation. Do not interfere as this might get you caught up in it as well.

8.). There is No cheating, it will not be tolerated. If you are found to be cheating you will be dq'ed from the game and will be box for 3 days until ADMINS can decide the punishment.

9.)There is no watching or Kibitzing at tables that are currently in progress.

10.) DQ is a DQ and game is canceled.
Exception to this rule is if it happens in 1st hand all may restart the game if all parties agree to this.
If 1 of the players disagree to restart then game is over,and it is a DQ.
THE TD MUST BE CALLED TO THE TABLE IF THERE IS A DISPUT BEFORE ANY ACTION WILL TAKE PLACE. 11.) If for some reason you need to block another member it must be authorized by an Admin. (You must unblock the player to allow to sit at same table to play. Not doing so will be considered MIA on the blocker.)

Please ask the TD in charge to sit at the table as well.

12.) Slow playing is 40 seconds timed from discard to discard.
Failure to play quickly will result in 2 warnings; 3rd time you will be DQ'D. Please keep BRB's to a maximum of 3 minutes and no more than 2 BRB's per game.

A sub is required if BRB will be over 5 minutes. At no time may a player ask for a sub, this is the hosts responsibility to handle the timer and the sub recruitment.

13.) In order to keep things moving along, we have a time limit on our games: 60 minutes for doubles, 45 minutes for singles, and 15 minutes for speed-type games (any game listed in the Speed section of our TD Help page). As staff you need to give a warning of game time limit approaching. Please give a 10 minute warning for singles and 15 minutes for doubles, and 5 minutes for speed. If a game goes the full time allotted, game is to be called at the table by the td. This means you post at table something to the effect of "Game time is up, and the winner is --------, based on the scores in the box!!!".

14.) Please post the time of boot in the lobby and let the TD know. If using time under a minute in length is not consider a BOOT. If the Boot is greater than one minute, MIA timer will start from the time of the Boot. The booted player has 10 minutes to return or until any remaining time is left on the timer. No more than 3 Boots per game or the player will be DQ'ed.

15.) Here at KE you do not have to get a new table every time you start a game. Don't click start until everyone is seated at the table.

16.)Pairings have been posted in lobby the person setting table has 3 minutes to set table. If they do not set the table within 3 minutes then the TD will put them on MIA and have 2nd person to make. If the player still does not come to table after the 10 minute timer the win will posted to you.

17.) If a member wishes to apply to become a TD then they can go to the Directors Page and look for the link at the top of the page TD APPLICATION. Before you can apply to become a TD you will need to have been a League member for at least 30 days and have played at least 20 games.

18.)18.)MINI SWISS DOUBLES
WE ARE GOING TO ELIMINATING THE 1 DAY BOXING BY:
IF SOMEONE LEAVES A GAME THAT IS IN PROGRESS IN THE FIRST OR SECOND ROUND THEN GET A SUB AND THE ORIGINAL PLAYER FROM THE OPPOSING TEAM FACING THEM GETS THE WIN NO MATTER WHAT THE OUTCOME OF THE GAME IS.
IF A MEMBER OF THE LOSING TEAM LEAVES AFTER THE FIRST ROUND IS FINISHED THEN REMOVE JUST THAT PLAYER FROM THE TOURNEY GIVE THE OPPOSING PLAYER THE WIN AND LET THE WINNERS OF THE FIRST ROUND PLAY 1 VS 1.
IF A MEMBER OF THE WINNING TEAM LEAVES AFTER THE FIRST ROUND IS FINISHED SET TIMER FOR 5 MINUTES. IF NO RETURN GIVE THE OPPOSING PLAYER THE WIN THEN MAKE IT 1 VS 1 AND LET THE TWO LOSERS PLAY 1 VS 1.

FREQUENT OFFENDERS WILL NOW GET BOXED 3 DAYS FOR SO MANY OFFENCES IN A CERTAIN TIME PERIOD.

19.) There is No Clicking resign button by members.

PLEASE NOTE THESE RULES CAN BE MODIFIED AT ANY TIME UNTIL PENDING FINAL APPROVAL BY THE FULL STAFF.

WELCOME AND HAVE SOME FUN!!!
