A quiz to see if you like to fight
Charles Goren
December 20, 1965
'Don't bid unless you've got the cards' was for years a sound axiom for run-of-the-neighborhood bridge. Now this is changing. Even the most timid souls are wading in with harassing competitive bids. Do you know when to compete, and how? This quiz is designed to test how up-to-date your fighting instincts are. If you score 50 points or more you are a battler to beware of, and 35 or more means you have a fighting chance. But if your score is under 30 you had better hope your partner can do your brawling for you
