How to calculate penality ? 

The penality is calculated from the bidding with
the acronym: LIAR TSAR
Each letter
represents a factor inluencing the penality. You should start from L and go letter by
letter, calculating penality by simple addition or subtraction:

L 
= 
Level 
the
higher the level – the greater the penality 


I 
= 
Information 
the
more information – the greater the penality 


A 
= 
Agreements 
the
more agreements – the smaller the penality 


R 
= 
Rescue 
If they are escaping – the penality increases 


T 
= 
Trapping 
the
more trapping – the greater the penality 


S 
= 
Superiority 
If one side is clearly superior to the other in
strength... 


A 
= 
Artificiality 
artficiality increases the penality 


R 
= 
for mnemonics purpose only – to
make it TSAR and help memorizing 

Before we have
a closer look at those factors, it should be stressed that:
