This week's deal features GIB as declarer. GIB is the revolutionary bridge playing program developed by Matt Ginsberg. As you will see from this week's deal, GIB is capable of playing cards as well as or better than the best human declarers. Bridge Base Inc. is hoping to release a commercial product based on GIB early in 1998.

Our friend Onno Eskes from Amsterdam showed us this deal. It was originally played during a Dutch First Division Competition. Neither declarer was successful in the IMP match in which this week's deal was played. Onno gave the deal to GIB and was more than a little impressed when GIB made the contract. GIB's line of play is presented here.

Although it may appear to be the case, GIB was not looking at all the cards!
