Challenge 7W41 by Richard Pavlicek
There is no misspelling despite what your eyes may perceive. I wish you success as you bid with finess these six problems from a past tournament. When and where? Thats my little secret, though Ill give you a hint that spelling is a clue. But dont worry about that. All you have to do is choose your call as South from the choices offered.
In July 2001 these problems were presented as a poll, with 583 entrants from 97 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 forget the duress, and make your best guess as you bid with finess.
