Minor Penalty Card - A single card below the rank of an honor and exposed inadvertently (as in playing two cards to a trick, or in dropping a card accidentally) becomes a minor penalty card. Any card of honor rank, or any card exposed through deliberate play (as in leading out of turn, or in revoking and then correcting), becomes a major penalty card; when one defender has two or more penalty cards, all such cards become major penalty cards.

1.

The exposed card does not have to be played at the first opportunity; another suit may be played by offender

2.

Any honor from that suit may be played, but the penalty card must be played if the offender does not chose an honor

3.

Offender's partner is not subject to lead penalties, provided unauthorized information was not passed
