Slawinski had some revolutionary ideas about improving bidding. Actually he won a bidding world championship with one of his systems in the 70's (maybe at the end of 60's).
As a reponse ACBL, WBF and similar low-intelligence organisations banned his ideas.

I deeply understand his opinion. Anyone who calls him non bridge player does not know much about bridge, at least about the non-anglo-saxon bridge world.

My favourite principle for unclear forcing (or not) pass situations: if our bidding can be based purely on distribution, then it is not forcing.

My partner's favourite tool for situations like this one: if North wanted to make a later pass forcing he should have bid 4 or 4 over 4.

“Splinters are not available in this partnership. :( Neither is 4C or 4D RKC.”

Why don't you blame your methods then?

Let's say next time you'll have this one:
KJ875 72 7 KQJT5.
Or this: KJ87 72 7 QJT873
I wonder what will you bid then. I am talking to those players who voted 3.

Does any of existing bridge engines actually use GPU? Or at least multiple cores of the CPU?

My guess is at least a void in each hand with no touching cards.

If you have to follow suit, your choices are limited by your number of cards in that suit. If you can discard (or ruff) you can choose any of your cards. That way the search tree will grow much more quickly.

(Sorry Avon, just read you comment, this is basically the same)

David, it's childish to show only hearts with your example hand. How do you continue if the heart queen is missing? Even 6-4x is improbable with a goodish 4-carder.

They were good, solid players, by the way.

… and the cheaters can win every tournament even more easily than with cheating :-)
Not to talk about the prize money (In Europe it is not rare).
