How far to go for full disclosure
Hi Kevin. I understand your point and agree in general that yes, if you have an agreement, or an understanding based on previous events, disclosure is fair and proper. Even more so in a tournament vs a club game. My comment about whether forgetting the agreement every time being relevant ...
How far to go for full disclosure

Open Toronto Discussion Thread
If you plan on using the subway more than once, it is cheaper and easier to use tokens instead of cash. Token machines are available outside almost all subway entrances. The tokens can also be used on the above ground buses and streetcars. We have worked with the ACBL to ...
