I firmly believe that the law does not say anything about how quickly the
card must be played. Isn't no-grace-period a new concept in the laws?
I am happy to hear how you rule. I don't actually believe you. I mean,
what do you do when the player doesn't ever play their card? Procedural
Penalty? It would be a lot easy if the card was just a played card.
Do you allow a grace period for defender waving his card around so that
his partner can see it but not actually putting in face up on or near the
table? I am guessing most directors would give a grace period for this.
