TGIF

Years ago, on the last Friday of every month, our fearless director would distribute entries into a bidding contest: the current problems from the "It's Your Call" article in the latest Bulletin. He would score the entries, a time-consuming process to be sure, and award the announced winners with a free play.

I miss TGIF, and for years I have been thinking about putting this feature on the VBC web page.  It is finally here.

All entrants are welcome!  The top two local scorers will each win a free play.


Rules

Bidding conventions are Bridge Bulletin Standard, which is loosely based on Standard American.
All scores are copied from the It's Your Call column of the ACBL Bulletin.
The top quartile of entrants in each category make the overalls.
Pseudonyms are not permitted.
