Dealing and Comparison
When you play bridge, you usually play a couple of deals,
and these can be scored in different ways. With computer bridge,
there is the additional question of where the deals come from.
Pairs Tournament Mode
In this mode you are playing hands that have already been played
in a Pairs Tournament. So, having played a hand, your score will be
compared with the results previously recorded and thus you can get
an immediate match-point score.
The programs conatins about 4500 pair tournament deals.
Comparison against the Computer at South
You are playing random deals and compare your result
against 4 computer players.
With Windows, this can be done in the concurrent Closed Room;
with Android, after your own play.
Comparison against a second player at South
You play a match with a number of deals as South and compare
with a player playing the same deals.
With Windows, the second player can play
at a different PC,
as the result tables can be exchanged via the Q-plus server.
Team Tournament Mode
You, as North-South at your table, form a team with East-West at
the second table
and play against East-West at your table and North-South
at the second table.
The programs conatins about 4500 team tournament deals.
Further dealing functions
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 handsm which are 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 the bids also or the bids and the lead, or the complete deal with the play.
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.
