  1. Keyhole Shuffling Ruling

    The Corp should not look at the other two cards the Runner saw, since they were not revealed.
  2. Runner Trashes Faceup Ruling
    Does Keyhole trash cards faceup or facedown?
    The general rule is that if the Runner does the trashing, the cards are trashed faceup. So they should go to the Archives faceup.
