Challenge 7W33 by Richard Pavlicek
Love may come and tap you on the shoulder, some starless night! But first, try this bidding challenge based on six problems from a past tournament. When and where? Thats for me to know and for you to find out, but the artist who sang the title song is a clue. Never mind about that. Just choose your call as South from the choices offered.
In May 2001 these problems were presented as a poll, with 519 entrants from 96 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.
The quiz is waiting! Never let it fade away or if you prefer save it for a rainy day.
