Law 50
B. Major or Minor Penalty Card
A single card below the rank of an honour exposed unintentionally (as in playing two cards to a trick, or in dropping a card accidentally) becomes a minor penalty card. Any card of honour rank, or any card exposed through deliberate play (for example in leading out of turn, or in revoking and then correcting), becomes a major penalty card; when one defender has two or more penalty cards, all such cards become major penalty cards.
C. Disposition of Minor Penalty Card
When a defender has a minor penalty card, he may not play any other card of the same suit below the rank of an honour until he has first played the penalty card, but he is entitled to play an honour card instead. Offender’s partner is not subject to lead restriction, but see E following.

If South now bids 2NT (Lebensohl) and follows with 3NT (over 3), what is the difference between this sequence and a direct 3NT over 2?

David, on #1 deal played by Fishbein, the card play goes wrong at trick 4. North won trick 3. The play then shown is K,6,8,2 which is incorrect.

If the bidding had gone
1 (p) 1NT (p)
(p) X
Would it still be a penalty X?

Non-forcing, say 6-10. I'm thinking of a 0=3=5=5 or a 0=4=(4=5) opposite a 1 Spade opening

Is responding 1NT with a void considered a psyche?

North seems to hold 5, so he may well be bidding a 3 card suit?

1. Decide on your bid before reaching for the bidding card
2. If you have a BIT, bid something :)
