Board 5
7H=10, 6H=9, 6NT=8, 5NTw=6, 5H=6, 4NT=6, 5NTe=5

7H is a bad contract (on about 50%), and even 6H has some problems on diamond lead.

6H should be best, 7H better than 6NT, and 5H equal to 5NTw (and better than 7H and 6NT). Probably something like:
6H = 10
5H, 5NTw = 8
7H= 7
6NT, 4NTe = 6
5NTe = 5

Don't you agree?

About other sets than BQ. I didnt make them and I didnt score them. I may have misread or compleatly done error entering them to database. I cant rescore what others has done, just fix what seems to be a mistype.

Well, you probably should require people to give up their copyrights
for submitting boards. Best contracts are rather factual, and if you
can't correct poor submissions it will degrade the quality of this tool.
However, doing corrections could be too time consuming and it takes
somebody fairly expert to evaluate best lines of play, best contract.

I think that we should keep original scores. We've made BQ to be bidding practice tool, so scores are only the second most imporant feature.

Woody is open on discussion on hs original scores - BidingQuest source of boards.

Let me give you an example why it is wrong for me to correct a score made by others. I make bidding sets for the ACBL magazine. I give my personal scores but there is a guy named Bobby Wolf that do the scoring for their article. Perhaps he look at my scoring, but even if I think I have good judgement about how to score a bidding, should I correct this world champion player?
