We now have a leader on all of them, and on all except A the leader is at least two votes ahead of the runner up. Potentially 3 people still to vote, and changes are allowed.

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.

I was so flabbergasted that I double-checked the statement.

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.

Results will likely be available May 11. I may not have internet access for several days after that. You could get scores by problem here https://www.bridgeworld.com/indexphp...lastmonth.html

and find out if we made the honor roll (as Steve White) here https://www.bridgeworld.com/indexphp...lastmonth.html

Until late afternoon May 10, and maybe until May 11, those links will have the May problem results. We're answering the June problems now. I will post results when I get a chance, maybe not until May 21.

Super brief summary with short internet access: we have 750, tied for 3-5 on honor roll, behind one 800 and one 780. Havenít looked at what we missed, and likely wonít for a week.
