ATB - Missed Slam
From what I've seen, fit jumps have morphed somewhat since Robson-Segal 25 years ago. If you are a purist, a FJ will have a tightly defined meaning - Qxxx AKxxx xx xx would be prototypical. The challenge for many is that this restriction limits their use. Our conclusion is not ...

Trivia quiz: how high (or low) will you go?
