This highly entertaining and thoughtful program allows you to declare
bridge hands at five different levels of difficulty while the computer
is defending accurately against your line of play. If you do not select
the proper line of play, you will never make your contract. Try a different
route to the contract and the computer will alter the defense to set you
unless you do it right. There is a very complete analysis at the end of
each deal describing the alternative approaches of the declarer play and
which is the best choice. The skill levels cover deals that are appropriate
for new beginners to those that are intended for expert bridge players.
You may choose the deal, 180 in total, by either the skill level or the
type of problem (e.g. suit combinations, timing).
We highly recommend BRIDGE MASTER for our readers who
wish to improve upon the declarer skills.
