Convention card

In contract bridge and particularly in duplicate bridge a convention card is a listing of the conventions and treatments that a particular pair is using at a given time.[1] The Laws of Duplicate Bridge specify that "Each partnership has a duty to make available its partnership understandings to opponents before commencing play against them."[2] In games regulated by the ACBL, this is done with a convention card. The ACBL General conditions of Contest specify that "Each member of a partnership MUST have a completely filled out convention card available for the opponents."[3] There are standard forms available on which a partnership may enter its conventions and treatments. There are also various computer programs which a player may use to create and print a convention card.
