There was no income tax in ancient Rome. It would cause a revolt.

Universal income tax is quite modern concept.

Jail for unpaid money. How very XVIII century. Who's said Scandinavia are modern countries?

IMPs are teams creatures. Pair event on IMPs is very random.

A looong tournament, with full rotation, and with converting IMPs->VP - another story.

3 was awful. First choice - pass, second choice - pass, third choice - 2NT.

That said the main culprit is lack of agreement if 3 is forcing. For my money it should (3 shows some extras, so with 6-7PC and I'd like to give South choice 3/3NT), and with South hand I'd bid 3NT. I guess South was frightened by his 3 bid and chickened out.

Because after 2NT you won't find 5-3 ?

Long time ago one Polish pair has “discovered”, that on one board opps have values for 3NT, but suits don't break, finesses don't work, dead down two. Quick consultation:
- Do we double?
- But of course, a top is a top!

The board came in. One opponentn opened 1NT, the other one, with 10 or 11 points - PASSED!

Diamond cut diamond, right?

Pass. If you don't have any army, you don't start the war.

I think if you need K you should avoid RKCB. Now - for me it's AKx - “Partner, do you have Q or xx?”.

Pass. I have normal 1. Partner hasn't established forcing pass position. No reason to do anything, partner knows more.

4 seems OK. I prefer partner do RKCB, my hand is better defined.

I can't pass with extra trick and five controls. Partner's hand - Axxxx,Kxx,x,Axxx. Chosen values for sure, but dead minimum and nevertheless slam is excellent. Points schmoints.

Actually they could. In BB in Chile they tried to play FP in the play-off stage. But it was too much - having to play “normal” system in RR stage and FP in playoffs.
