Could 81234567 be brought up in five leads?


81234567 is out-of-course so you need a call that functions as a single. If
you permit three types of call then the following works:

Bristol, bob
Cambridge, single = 1234
Ashtead, bob
Bristol, bob
Group E method, single =34

No plain leads, though.

If you use s = 1234  t = x  then you can have:

Group C, s
Group D, s
Group F
London, t

[London can be replaced by any group F method that doesn't begin with place
notation x]

I haven't checked to see if any of the above is true (almost certainly
not!), but the question was only about bringing up 81234567 in five leads.


PS. Exercise for the bored reader: with the same calls s, t as previously
you can bring up 81234567 from rounds in 3 or in 4 leads.
