Fencers are allowed a 10 minute break between DE bouts. Is there a rule that establishes a minimum break for a fencer between pool bouts? In the official order of bouts, no fencer ever fences consecutive bouts, which should normally ensure a break of at least a couple of minutes. But what happens if the order is disrupted (for example because of a fencer who withdraws, or because of double-stripping)? If there is no rule about this is there a generally accepted guideline?
