Revoke (Renege) - A failure to follow to the suit lead when able to do so constitutes a revoke.  The declarer may ask a defender who has failed to follow suit whether he has a card of the suit led (but a claim of revoke does not automatically warrant inspection of quitted tricks - see Law 66C).  Dummy may ask declarer if partner is void in the suit led (but see Law 43B2(b)), however dummy is not under an obligation to do so.

 The ACBL Board of Directors under the authority granted in the revised Law61B, has ruled that in ACBL sanctioned events, a defender may inquire of his partner whether he has a card of the suit led.

Once a revoke is established, the offending side is not under an obligation to point out the irregularity.
