[quote=Mike Bell] ,,, thinking with a card out gives the same information as thinking without a card out - specifically, that you're not sure which card to play to this trick.[/quote] IMO, Andy Bowles's first comment detailed the legal position. The player's hesitation indicates he has a ...
Olympic Champ Sun Yang Banned 8 Years
NBOs rarely attempt to penalize cheating by top-players, so Rammohan Sarangan is right that they might try to tackle law-breaking at club-level, which sometimes seems to be deliberate. Anyway, it would foster better behaviour and most ordinary players would enjoy a cleaner game. Over the past 50 years, the WBF ...
