Challenge 7W25 by Richard Pavlicek
When shadows grow, Ill miss the glow that only you can survive. But then, I have no idea what Im talking about. While youre here, try this bidding challenge based on six problems from a past tournament. When and where? Thats my little secret for now, though youre welcome to guess from the clues on this page. But dont worry about that. All you have to do is choose your call as South from the choices offered.
In March 2001 these problems were presented as a poll, with 294 entrants from 77 locations.The poll is closed, but you can still try it as a quiz and find your score immediately.
Assume both sides use Standard American bidding (unless noted otherwise) with 15-17 notrumps, five-card majors and weak two-bids. Object is to find the best call based on judgment so only basic conventions are allowed. For a system reference, see Standard American Bridge.
So what are you waiting for? The time is now, and the place is here, so bid em like you got em!
