|During last week's Summerset Bridge Club session, Lisa and her partner
played a hand against another pair that ended up deciding the winners
for the match points awarded that night. In bridge, partners sit across
from each other North-South and East-West, with bidding proceeding clockwise
around the table. In order lowest-to-highest, the bidding in bridge goes
1 Club, 1 Diamond, 1 Heart, 1 Spade, 1 No Trump, 2 Clubs, 2 Diamonds, ...,
7 No Trump; players may also pass and not bid in any round of the auction.
Given the clues below, can you determine each player's full name, the order
in which the four sat at the table, and the bid(s) each made in the crucial
- Omar opened the bidding with 1 Heart and was followed immediately
by Wong bidding 1 Spade.
- The hand was played at Carolyn's 2 No Trump on her second turn
in the bidding, which was followed immediately by Lisa passing.
- At one point in the bidding, Ben immediately followed Karpov's 2 Clubs
with a raise to 2 Diamonds.
- Immediately after Hoyle made a bid--not in No Trump--on his first turn
in the auction, Johnson passed.
