I am playing game in 4 hearts and get four. The opponents revoke on the 12th trick. If they had not revoked they would of taken us down one trick. Do we get our four hearts? I know a revoke does not get a penalty with the last two tricks of a hand being played.

  • No penalty, but the revoke is still corrected.. See the answer by Fabian velow. Jul 7 '16 at 3:28

From the ACBL Rules:

Law 62.D is first applied:

  1. On the 12th trick, a revoke, even if established, must be corrected if discovered before all four hands have been returned to the board.

In Switzerland we have the same ruling for a trick 12 Revoke.

So the revoke will be fully corrected without penalty and the hand is one down.

    I think that's actually from the World Bridge Federation Laws, approved by the ACBL, the European Bridge Federation and - most important since OP specifed 'Acol Bridge' - the EBU. Jul 7 '16 at 15:10
