  1. Revoke

    To annul by withdrawing. In trick-taking card games, a revoke is a violation of important rules regarding the play of tricks serious enough to render the round invalid. A revoke is a violation ranked in seriousness somewhat below overt cheating, with the status of a more minor offense only because, when it happens, it is usually accidental. Trick-taking games normally have several rules regarding which cards may and may not be played to a trick. For example, most games require a player to follow suit or play in the suit led, if possible. Rules of this sort are sometimes called "honor rules", because there is no way to detect a violation at the moment of its commission. However, the irregularity will normally be discovered later, and there are usually strict penalties for revokes. Some "honor rules" in different trick-taking games ⁕Spades, Euchre and 500 require that players play to the suit led, unless void in it. ⁕Hearts requires that players follow the suit led. In some variants, a player holding the Queen of Spades and void in the led suit is required to play it. ⁕Pinochle requires players to ⁕play to the led suit unless void in it, with a potentially winning card if possible;if void in the led suit, trump with a potentially winning card;if unable to do any of those things, play anything.
