Play in 4!s (IMPs)
This hand needs dummy entries. Which are the QJT in trumps. Ruff a H then lead a low spade towards them. Plan on winning next S lead in Dummy, ruffing next H with the AS, then returning to Dummy with a D ruff to draw trumps and develop clubs.
BW 2/1: Opener's 2NT Rebid

If you play QC, it is covered by the K.
AI and Chess
We should admit that we have no idea how a neural network learns bridge, go, shogi, bakgammon, whatever in 24 hours...outclassing millions of years of human thought and thousands of years of machine computation. I doubt it will take more than a day or two to produce a superior ...
Thank You to Vugraph Operators
