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. Analyses and tournament highlights are also available.
Its time to place your bets! Get the chips on the table, and you might break the bank.
