Bridge players from the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters, and anywhere else, are invited to try this bidding challenge based on six problems from a past tournament. When and where is my little secret, but you can bet its in the U.S.A. All you have to do is select your call as South from the choices offered.
In July 2003 these problems were presented as a poll, with 1083 entrants from 113 locations.The poll is closed, but you can try still 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 join the fun and help America celebrate its 227th birthday! To get the fireworks going, Ill even start you out with a nine-bagger.
