Challenge 8W01 by Richard Pavlicek
Last years Bermuda Bowl held in Monte Carlo caused quite a stir as the winner wasnt known until hours after play ended, because of an appeal. This makes me wonder: What was the longest wait ever for such a verdict? Never mind. Perhaps my clues will help you guess the tournament from which these problems came, but dont wipe out over that. Just choose your calls as South.
In September 2004 these problems were presented as a poll, with 1410 entrants from 129 locations. The poll is closed, but you can still try it as a quiz and find your score immediately. Analyses and tournament highlights are also available.
