Answering Sabine's Question
Thanks, Michael! Did you consider using the "next" option in the hand diagram to embed the play progression within the diagram, rather than list them? It honestly would help my advancing eyes and memory, or perhaps I'm the only one?

A Cheater's Best Friend? Secrecy, Or?
May I ask: Is the status quo acceptable?
