Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Playing against a pro-client pair in a team game in 1995, pro on my left. On the previous hand my partner made a light 3NT, and this time I have bid 3NT even more aggressively. The client leads, and as I put down dummy I say "I know this isn't much but you played the last one so well", and the pro says (disapproving of his partner's lead again) "You sure picked your mark".
Bridge Accomplishments
Won Chicago Invitational Pairs (1996) prior to Becoming a Life Master; 2nd in 5K mini-Spingold in 2006; a number of overall finishes in NABC+ events; made it to second day of Reisinger in 2012
Favorite Conventions
Transfer advances, transfer rebids, etc.

Do the comparison right....with the auction in the other room ending in game or slam consistently regardless of your decision. So the phantom costs 14 when the miss costs 12. When the phantom costs 17, the miss costs only 10 (13 on the scoresheet less the 3 you were ...
What Went Wrong Here for North-South
OP wanted to know why they lost almost 8 IMPs on the board. Not to assign blame, just to know how it happened.

Where's the choice for "lost interest in methods like this when the scoring table changed"?
What Went Wrong Here for North-South
What bid would you recommend the west hand make after 2-Pass-4, which would be the action to West at many tables?
Kibitzer draws attention to a false concession
Yes.
Your Take on This Exposing This Revoke?
You were wrong about whether you had made a statement. I wouldn't bet on you....
