World Bridge Championships 2010 - Bots Battle Bit-By-Bit…
by Al Levy
In the closest round-robin finish in the 14 year history of the World Computer-Bridge Championship, the last match determined all 4 qualifiers for the semifinal KO stage. With one round to go any one of the top five contenders could have been eliminated. The final result was WBridge5 first with 110 VPs, followed by Shark Bridge with 108 VPs, Jack with 106 VPs and Bridge Baron with 103 VPs. Q-Plus Bridge lost its last match to Shark Bridge by a 6-24 VP margin, and was eliminated with 99 VPs. Micro Bridge was also out of the money with a respectable 74 VPs, and newcomer Moose Bridge managed only 6 VPs, in what the software developer referred to as a ‘learning experience.’ Click here for updates

It is exceedingly easy to load and use, and just about eveything a new player would want to know about is at hand"

DEEP FINESSE tests all hands at Winter NABC in Florida.One of the greatest tools ever invented to analyze bridge hands is a software program known
as Deep Finesse. Once a deal is entered into the program, you can find out what declarer lines work and what the best defense is. All the deals in each set of hand records have gone through Deep Finesse. The program is very practical – it analyzes according to the cards as they are dealt, not according to what might have been. The contracts listed on the hand records are those that can be made with correct play against correct defense as the cards lie. Want to see how it works? Go to www.deepfinesse.com and enter the deal you want to study. You can try all manner of play methods or defense methods, and Deep Finesse will let you know if you’re on the right track.

January 4, 2003 - Pavlicek's Bidding Poll BOT results. Since March of 2001, Richard Pavlicek has tested various bridge computer programs on the problems in his bidding polls (held every odd month), and the results are summarized on his site. Richard notes this should not be regarded as a rigid scientific test because some factors cannot be equalized (e.g., bidding system understandings, and the exact time allowed to make each call). Programs with adjustable skill levels were tested at the highest setting. This is a great way to see the comparitive skill of today's bridge programs and yet another great service from RP! Also, Pavlicek has run similar tests since February 2001 with his Play Contest Bot Results. World Champion software, Jack, was added as of December 2002.

"This is a program to just generate deals for a tournament, without repeating series, statistically good, and safe. No possibility to select types of hands or whatever. Just deals for tournaments. This is in sharp contrast with my previous program, Dealer, that excelled in the selection part, but as I know now, failed in most respects when it comes to tournament dealing.

PBN - PBN stand for Portable Bridge Notation. PBN is a proposal for saving bridge deals from competitions or game programs in a universal and platform independent file system. PBN is a universal notation for bridge games. It has been developed to read and write bridge games in PBN files by any bridge program on any platform. There are several bridge programs that have implemented the PBN format. (I'm very glad that GIB has adopted PBN.) The PBN standard and additional information can be found on the PBN homepage A new version of the PBN Verifier, that has been written in JAVA. I hope this eases the verification of PBN files on any platform, and the generation of PBN files in export format for all platforms. More details can be found in the read.me file inside the archives on the PBN homepage. - Tis Veugen
