West was keen to show her minors and thought 4NT was ideal.

S didn't have much trouble with the lead

-1 was actually good for 16%. 2 people played in 3NT, for which you can hardly blame them after S declined to bid. Which I guess might in many ways be better than jump bidding 2.

on Hand 2, South did well to push to the par score...but par scores in online individuals are worth 31.6%

On to hand 3 where we dodged a bullet:

I was perhaps a little timid but luckily third time around W's hand had gotten a lot better.

 

That was my best board although I'm slightly disappointed I didn't get the 16% for 2. If you're going to come last, do it in style.

By hand 4, most of the original human competitors have departed in fits of pique and indignation at their partners.

I played with a replacement robot, and the robots do like a jump to game:

On board 5 South was feeling lucky and he was. 5% to us.

Board 6 looks exciting, and it was. Especially after S's 1 opener .

At least E was as flummixed by the bidding as I was and didn't return a , so we were just down 1. 

S contacted me afterwards to tell me this:

IDIOT 4S OK

10 LEW

Which I guess is Polish for 10 tricks, which might explain the opener but sort of ignores the 5 losers, needless to say undoubled in every case so a fairly flat 46% and a fine finish on 31%.
