ATB Another Missed Slam

Top Bridge Pros' Tax Woes Continue
Perhaps Geir and Tor should take up painting?
Delayed spade overcall
It is what it is. Partner clearly wants to balance out of a likely poor score, and my primary mission is to avoid hanging Partner, who is bidding both our hands. Ergo, with 3+ 's, I pass; with less than 3 's, I bid. There are times when ...

Missed Vulnerable Game (ATB)
Very sound advice, Steve. One generally takes this perspective after several decades in the trenches, an amount of time that many of us have put in!
Missed Vulnerable Game (ATB)
Things happen. Life happens. In a fair number of similar situations, bad things, rather than good, happen . . .
