Normally dealing of the hands is done automatically in a
random way. But it is also possible to demand specific deals by
providing a deal number. On all PCs running Q-plus Bridge the
same hand will always be dealt if the same deal number, e.g.
1234-56, is given.
Thus, a practically unlimited number of program dealt hands is available.
Own hands can be entered (hand input dialog); they can be managed (saved and restored) within the program. It is possible to enter remarks to the hands. Remarks can be linked to the stages of the game, e.g. at the beginning of the deal, after the lead, after the end of the play.
When retrieving a deal, it can be specified if only the cards of the deal are retrieved, or also the bids or also the bids and the lead, or the complete deal with the play.
The program includes more than 4000 team tournament deals and more than 4000 pair tournament deals. When playing these deals, the own result is compared against the results of the players.
A deal filter can be used to select only interesting hands (e.g. strong South hands).
Variations of deals can be created, e.g. by exchanging the suits in all four hands
or by exchanging two hands.
