Sneak preview: on hand A, we have a 0=7=5=1 shape with very good suits, but the opponents have already found spades before we get a chance to bid. We also have a hand with 8 spades to AKQJ, one with 7 diamonds to AKQ10, and one with 6 diamonds to AKQ.

Umm, I also had a 640. Somehow in your table you changed my vote on (E) to 3NT, but it was always 3S and never changed. (I changed my vote on (F) to 3NT.)
I was pretty unhappy with the scoring on (A) and (B). On (B) a majority of the BW expert panel chose to raise clubs immediately, but since there is more than one way to raise clubs and only one way to show four spades, the plurality double got 100 and the majority club raises scored poorly. On (A), 6 panelists voted to 3D, which only scored a 50, which is pretty low for six panelists, especially when that was the second highest vote and 50 was the fifth highest score...and I don't see how the bids grouped naturally like they did on (B), though perhaps we will find out when the July issue arrives.

Now we just need MP stratifications within the contest. I'll happily represent the 199ers

August problems. Deadline July 10 9AM.

#269




Initial August guesses:
A 3H. I think I need to walk the dog on this one if I am going to be allowed to declare at any level, which should probably be my goal. B 5H. Conversely, on this one I want to put them to a highlevel guess before they know about their spade fit. However, I may tone this down to 4H as 5H tends not to be a panel choice. C Dbl. Not perfect, but more likely to get to a heart fit than a diamond raise and less likely to land us in hot water than 3H. If I hand more clubs I might pass, but I can't expect partner to protect here. D 4H. No reason partner can't have six hearts and be void in diamonds. E This is close among Pass, 4C, and 4S. I haven't decided yet. Note that partner is on lead against hearts, so he should interpret 4C as primarily trying to help him with that task. F 2C. 91/2 tricks in hand and the boss suit, along with a good threecard heart holding. 1S is not going to be protected. Given that partner is a passed hand, I would probably open 4S at other colors to inhibit a sac. At these colors, letting the opponents in mostly rates to help us better evaluate our hands. G 3D. Where I live. No way to catch up later if I don't. Doubling and then bidding diamonds shows a much weaker hand than this. H. Spade 6. But I could live with anything except a heart. Leading away from A10xx into the strong notrumper has even less appeal than it might since that ace is my only entry. Last edited by Veni Vidi Vici; 07122018 at 08:02 AM..
