Challenge 7Y57 by Richard Pavlicek
Will the Ministry of Truth be impressed with your bidding? Find out in this bidding challenge on six problems from a past tournament. When and where? Sorry, my lips are sealed, though youre invited to guess from the clues. But dont worry about that; just select your call as South from the choices offered.
In November 2003 these problems were presented as a poll, with 1149 entrants from 116 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 start bidding, or I may have to call the Thought Police.If you get stumped, repeat after me, 100 times: Down with Big Brother!
