Tunnel Vision or Missed Opportunity
Oh, I took the slam, but retrospect made the "pass and lead a club" option tempting. Yes, I was almost certain she had the diamond ace (or a club void) due to my major suit holdings.
Three (Vienna Coups) in less than a year!
The point is that with a heart lead, there are only going to be two hearts left in dummy and the diamond ace did have to be cashed before running clubs because there is no other entry back. Thanks for being interested, though.

Decision to stay at a Bridge Tournament Venue
I used to attend a lot of tournaments, then I took my hiatus of almost 20 years. Since my return, I consider cost and inconvenience the primary impediments to leaving home for a tournament. Room cost is just one factor. As others have alluded, parking cost/convenience are also a ...
