Claim ruling poll
Change the 8 of diamonds to the 9. Then what happens if East says, “but I have four diamonds” so Declarer leads his low diamond towards Dummy and West follows suit? Would that be justice?
Top Bridge Pros' Tax Woes Continue
The contractor vs employee question is one the IRS is constantly litigating. They occasionally contend that a contractor who works for one company and only one should be treated as an employee. I would hope most bridge pros are aware of this. On another point, I was sutprised to learn ...

DIAMOND Wins Spingold
I'm with Aviv and Bilde (who led the TD at trick 2). The JD denies the T...and, since Declarer didnt cover with the K, he has Tx. Hence Boye's spade shift. If you let partner's J hold, he will play you the ATxx or longer.
