AI, Contract Bridge, Conventional Bidding. A casual update.
Fair enough, Michael. Yeah, I meant simulate 1x/real play against yourself. Fair enough there's a lot of hidden complexity in that step.

Michal can you unpack that ? Not familiar with DD solving but seems I need to check all permutations . Self play can’t be worse than that in complexity (its linear).

How about , for a simulated hand, score it using actual result of self-play (play against yourself) with the appropriate hands closed?

Serious question, has any effort been put in to convince someone working in the machine learning community to take on this problem? Feels like an interesting scientific problem, and, of course, would be good for us.
