Anything Suspicious Here?
I was West and continued hearts at tricks two and three after a heart lead. Declarer played quickly (not overly quickly), playing four rounds of diamonds at tricks 4-7 (discarding two spades), my partner discarding one spade and one heart.

Collins & Kevin--Great suggestions! Thanks very much!
Crime and Punishment

Nonetheless, I believe that permanent expulsion (or ...
