Main   Study AN50 by Richard Pavlicek  

One Notrump Contested

These deals were played on Bridge Base Online (BBO) by Richard Pavlicek and Jim Munday. Opponents were experts (with rare exceptions). Deals are shown in reverse chronological order (most recent first) and selected to match the following conditions:

1. Our side opened the bidding 1 NT.
2. Opponents interfered with at least one bid.
3. There were at least four bids (omits simple auctions).
4. Final contract was undoubled and not a slam.
5. At least 1 IMP was won or lost.

Deals are not handpicked or edited, so do not expect perfection. What you see is exactly the way it occurred at the table. Our bidding follows the Pavlicek System. For viewing uniformity, deals have been rotated if necessary so Jim is North and Richard is South; and the actual board numbers are replaced with sequential numbering.

A running score for NS and EW is shown two ways: (1) Actual IMPs won, and (2) IMPs won against par. For an explanation of how par scores are determined, see Par for the Course.
