Steve Fama's lead problem: 542 52 87 AQJT32

Do something very different for a while to break out of the rut. In my longest standing partnership, now 20+ years and counting, we hit a rough spot some years back. 2 days before a weekend sectional, I emailed partner a 2-page summary of notes on EHAA with the heading ...
True North American Championships Coming
Maybe I'm being overly skeptical but I just checked my calendar.....
