OK - The “Ask Ed” question - can’t find the reference
Let’s go to the dark side: The dummy can revoke. So - it is against my advantage and lawful to not disclose there are only 12 cards in the dummy as a defender. ONLY declarer is responsible for the dummy and can take certain actions as you mentioned.
Ethics??
Did I miss something? OP said he was facing opening lead - so Auction has ended? LHO is now dummy and Law 43 takes over?

Motion: Bank Deduct Monthly Membership Dues
Did you read Brian's comments above? Or are you asking something he didn't cover in his statement. Asking as a moderator - the details of bank account deduction process is not my wheelhouse. Will have Brian look at this comment later today
Motion: Bank Deduct Monthly Membership Dues
Yes - a date will have to be picked - a detail in set up of this method of payment. My Social Security doesn't hit my account until the 11th I also pay many bills directly out of my checking accounts. My Credit Card bills all seem to be due on ...
Motion: Bank Deduct Monthly Membership Dues
Richard - Would you be unhappy paying ACBL dues monthly out of your bank account like you pay other bills? Or do you still write monthly checks?
