Entry And Re-entry

16. A candidate wishing to enter a table must declare such intention

before any of the players have cut a card, either for the purpose of

commencing a new rubber, or of cutting out.

17. In the formation of fresh tables, those candidates who have neither

belonged to nor played at any other table, have the prior right of

entry; the others decide their right of admission by cutting.

18. Any one quitting a table prior to the conclusion of a rubber may,

with the consent of the other three players, appoint a substitute in his

absence during that rubber.

19. Should a player leave a full table after he has played but one of

the two consecutive rubbers to which he is entitled, the candidate next

in order for entrance to the table takes his place, but must go out at

the end of one rubber, as his predecessor would have done.

20. A player cutting into one table while belonging to another, loses

his right of re-entry into the latter, and takes his chance of cutting

in as if he were a fresh candidate.

21. If any one break up a table, the remaining players have the prior

right to him of entry into any other; and should there not be vacancies

at such other table for all those candidates, they settle their

precedence by cutting.
