Table feel vs Cheating
Exactly right. One example from millions possible... Last night, partner made a Q lead against NT that could only be from AKQ(x..) or QJ9(x..) as the T was in my hand. The Q held. Based on the spots played COMBINED with partner's hesitation to lead at trick ...

For your consideration: Are Bridge and Baseball facing similar problems appealing to youth?
Remember him as a player? No, I'm not near old enough. Remember his story and the book about him? Heck yes... https://www.amazon.com/Catcher-Was-Spy-Mysterious-Life-ebook/dp/B005U3V2NG/
