One Notrump Contested

These deals were played on BBO by Richard Pavlicek and Jim Munday against expert opponents (with rare exceptions). Deals are selected to match the conditions below and displayed in reverse chronological order (most recent first).

1. Our side opened the bidding 1 NT.
2. Opposing side 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 don’t expect perfection. What you see is the way it happened at the table. Our bidding follows the Pavlicek System. For ease in viewing, deals have been rotated if necessary so Richard is South, and 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.
