Challenge 7W65 by Richard Pavlicek
After many years of studying hand records from duplicate games, you finally discovered this page. Now you can test yourself with 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 January 2002 these problems were presented as a poll, with 767 entrants from 101 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 bid em up! But please: Try not to make any Mickey Mouse bids.
