Challenge 7W49 by Richard Pavlicek
Spin the wheel! Come on, seven! Its a natural! See how well you play the odds on this bidding challenge based on six problems from a past tournament. When and where? Thats my little secret for now, though you are welcome to guess from the clues; but dont worry about that. Just choose your call as South from the choices offered.
In September 2001 these problems were presented as a poll, with 577 entrants from 102 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.
Its time to place your bets! Get the chips on the table, and you might break the bank.
