Challenge 7W81 by Richard Pavlicek
Are you ready to rumble? The match is about to begin, but dont expect any windmills or wooden shoes. Try this bidding challenge based on six problems from a past tournament. When and where is my little secret for now. Just choose your call as South from the choices offered.
In May 2002 these problems were presented as a poll, with 844 entrants from 103 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.
Theres no backing out now! Grab a Dutch clover for luck, and take your best shots.
