Battlefield Decision
Thanks - I really enjoyed this article and the manner in which it was constructed
How to Get Doubled in 6 Diamonds
Phil - you did really well to survive and thrive in a fifteen session event. As you endured the last few sessions, did you and other qualifiers feel you were at a disadvantage to the players who parachuted into the final?
How to Get Doubled in 6 Diamonds
I dunno - for sure this is wildly creative, but if ur his partner, u must wander why you show up some times.
