Instructions for New Deal of the Week Applet

The new Deal of the Week applet has many features. Below is a screen shot of the small version. Clicking on this picture will not have any effect here.

Important note: In order to speed up the presentation of the applet, some of the buttons are diabled to begin with. The presentation begins with cards presented in a standard hand diagram. Once pictures of playing cards have been loaded the button will be enabled and you can switch to pictures of playing cards which is a nicer mode.

Play Screen Features:
-The deal number and vulnerability are shown in the box at the left hand top corner. When someone is vulnerable their side of the square is colored red. In this example, no one is vulnerable so all sides of the square are white.
-The bidding diagram is at the right top corner. Bids that have explanations are surrounded by a grey square. Moving your mouse over the highlighted bid, will display the explanation.
-The pile of tricks at middle right is only shown when pictures of playing cards are used. Moving your cursor over any trick pile will display the cards played to that trick. In hand diagram mode, moving your cursor over the yellow box noting Tricks won will display the cards played to the last trick.
