Versus Slam Contracts 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. Opponents declared 6 C or higher (any slam).
2. Our side made at least one bid.
3. Opening bid was one of a suit or 1 NT.
4. Final contract was undoubled.

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.
