What Would You Bid?


Following last year's success, we will continue our 'What Would You Bid?' bidding competition for our members. Each challenge, starting October 1st, will present you with 6 bidding problems. You will have 1 month to consider and return your solutions. The problems will be posted on this website and an e-mail will be sent showing the problems and a link to the page where you can send in your answers! After two months, the answers will be published together with the next set of problems.
Our Expert Panel - we are fortunate to have a large pool of expert talent in the club - will make their bids and the scores will be set in accordance with their answers. We will publish the reasoning for their bids and the scores, together with the next set of problems. 
The System used is Standard English Modern Acol - Look under 'Documents' to see the full system description. If any other systems are used, they will be explained in the problems. 
Most problems will not be of a Systemic nature, more a question of evaluation and judgment. It will be great to see the agreements and disagreements amongst the Experts together with their thoughts and comments.
For every set of problems the best competitor will win one period of free bridge in the club’s events. At present worth £10.  
You have to send in answers to 4 sets of problems to compete for an overall prize of a ‘voucher’ capped at  £25 for bridge books of the winner’s choice.
If you send in 5 answers, the 4 best months will count. The Terms of Competition are on the club website.
Good Luck
