I'm changing my vote on B to pass. The fact that partner didn't have a penalty double available on the first round increases the chance he has a doubleton heart and makes it more difficult for me to know whether 2N or 3N is the right level. So I pass.
I'm also considering changing my vote on D to pass. I like red games as much as the next guy, but I also don't like getting doubled when I have this kind of hand.

So my votes are now P P 2H P 2N 4N 3S H2.
I could reasonably have passed on the first four problems...C was pretty close, too. After thinking long about problem F I still like 4N. I'll take the chance that I can find a 12th trick if partner has 3 first rounders. If he shows odd number of aces and a void by bidding 5NT (5S would show even number and a void, since it's not one of the normal responses to BWS Blackwood...Len you might want to look that one up, too!), I'll bid 6C as a grand try. and then signoff in spades. I think partner should work out that 5S over his 5H is to play. Problem H is even tougher. The diamond leaders make a lot of good points, but I still think it should be partner leading diamonds and hearts seem like the best way to give him the lead.

problem F
IN RETROSPECT i THINK MY 4s IS INSUFFICIENT

#229




Super brief summary with short internet access: we have 750, tied for 35 on honor roll, behind one 800 and one 780. Haven’t looked at what we missed, and likely won’t for a week.
