Same Hand, Different Auction


quiz-pic

One of the first things new players learn is how to count points. An ace is four, king is three, etc... But as experienced players, we know that those points aren't really accurate. Is a doubleton queen really worth two points? What if your left hand opponent has preempted in that suit?

As an auction develops, your hand can grow or decrease in value. See if you are properly evaluating what your hand is worth based on the auction rather than first impressions.

For the entirety of this quiz your hand will be the same. It will also always be none vulnerable and playing matchpoints.
