Goren's New Quiz
Charles Goren

Maybe you are the rare person who honestly belongs in that vastly overcrowded army of players who claim that they never "get the cards." There is no better way to find out—and prove forevermore that fate has it in for you—than by tackling the hands below. To rate yourself, a score of 82 to 90 is master, 72 to 81 top rate, 54 to 71 good, 36 to 53 average. If you score less, keep talking but never, never let anybody kibitz as you work a quiz. For the answers, turn the page. None of the hands is vulnerable unless otherwise noted. They pose a real test even for experts.
