Problem 1

  • Bob MacDonald: 4C – Gerber
  • lionel traverse: Pass – we seem to have 28 points maximum together. although my C look promising, it would be a gamble to bid 6NT
  • Ken Putt: 5C – Singleton diamond makes NT too risky, but point count means game should be there.

Problem 2

  • lionel traverse: 5D – my p has a minimum of 5 points outside D, surely he must lock C, and we should lose no more than 2 tricks.

Problem 3

  • C. Ann Brydon: Pass – I would bid again after hearing Opps bid
  • lionel traverse: Pass – D is preventing 1NT bid, just wait and see. we are vulnerable.

Problem 4

  • lionel traverse: 2D – Hopefully my p will realize this cue bid shows both Majors. We can always end in 2NT

Problem 5

  • lionel traverse: 4N – I will ask for RKC in H, but will close at 6 or 7C.
