Quiz 8D41 by Richard Pavlicek
As declarer in notrump, do you have the insight to make the winning plays? Test yourself on these six problems! (Or at least vote for the pictured solution that would make America great again.) Assume the scoring is IMPs, and your opponents are top-notch experts not to be confused with BBO world-class, which can be a notch above hopeless.
For each problem enter eight cards (e.g., S2) in the order you would play them to Tricks 1-4. Routine early plays, if any, are already entered. Unless noted otherwise: (1) Assume both opponents follow suit; second hand low, third or fourth hand to their best advantage. (2) If an opponent is on lead, assume the suit they led previously is continued for the quiz, though it might not be in actual play.
Are you ready? Then go to it like a bat out of Hell.
