    Money Play. How should Red play 11?

    Over the board I failed the test and played the wooden 24/22, 7/5.

    Correct is the dramatic 5/3*/2*/1, going for the blitz.

    In a quiz it is easy to find the correct play but not so easy in live play. So, keep your eye out for such opportunities – they are not always easy to spot!

      5/4/3*/2*/1. Without prejudice.

      I think Peder's play is brilliant. You have to be on your toes to see that one over the board!
