about me

I am a player, club owner and unit official living in Fernie - a city of less than 5,000 located in South-Eastern British Columbia, Canada.

John Diamond's bidding problem: Q3 KT73 AQ5 AJ86
Changing the pointed Queen to a round one makes the hand at least 1 trick better. I'd be more likely to X but hate the vulnerability.
