The deal having been completed the players are entitled to look at their
cards, and then declare, in turn, whether they will "stand" or "pass," the
player on the dealer's left having the first call. If he decide to stand
he declares the number of tricks he will stand for, while if he elects to
pass he simply states his intention of so doing, but it is understood
that the first caller must stand for one trick, should all the others
decide to pass, except in the case where the Double Header is agreed to
(see page 13). The next player then announces his intention. If he
cannot stand for more tricks than have already been called he must pass,
and the same holds good all round, until the dealer is reached. No player
may make a second declaration, or alter one once made.
