Challenge 7W57 by Richard Pavlicek
Lay down your sword and shield! Take off your traveling shoes and 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, though you are welcome to guess from the clues; but dont let that bother you. Just choose your call as South from the choices offered.
In November 2001 these problems were presented as a poll, with 714 entrants from 98 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.
Are you ready? Then take off your socks, go down to the levee, and get your feet wet!
