Challenge 7W73 by Richard Pavlicek
Have cards, will travel! The sights are almost too beautiful for bridge, but here you are. Test yourself on 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 worry about that. Just choose your call as South from the choices offered.
In March 2002 these problems were presented as a poll, with 813 entrants from 106 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 what are you waiting for? Let your bidding skills blossom as you enjoy the scenery.
