TD decision: I'm still scratching my head
Tom, I didn't consider the pips to be of importance, as my intention was to show the structure of the TD decision rather than to argue the ratios employed. Even without the pips the slam is makeable along the crossruff line. Club lead, ruff, spade finesse, A of clubs ...
