Here is a suggestion - introduce “Almost Just Declare”.
That is the first bid of the human is made by GIB.
Than human continue bidding. So after pass -pass- there will be no “weaker minor” bid, and if the human still wants to be in 3NT - good luck.

So you want to wait until a “non-primitive”, ideal version of GiB is created in your Math department?

Someone on this tread said that it is all about who can better manipulate the robot partner and robot opponents, giving the current knowledge of their behavior.

You don't have to play the GIB version of 2/1. And at least GIB will not complain about anything.

Dave - there are basic and advance version of GIB, did you try both?
How GIB defends is published -

When it's following to partner's opening lead, it will usually give an attitude signal:
High spot card with an Ace or King
High spot card with a Queen behind dummy's Ace or King
Low in any other situation.

Full card is here:

Congratulations on the great win!! As Jerry said it is for Bulgaria and it makes it even brighter for nice guys who are “fun to be around”. Hard working pair representing the values of several generations of BG bridge players. Comes as a no-surprise as we see more and more Bulgarian names appearing at the top standings at tournaments across Europe, Asia and the States. Jerry is heavily involved with Bulgarian Bridge Federation and organizing Summer Bridge Camps for kids in Bulgaria.
Waiting to see you “In the Well” at Bridgewinners to share more of your experience.

Serge - At the table I passed. Pd hand: void, AKx, Q10xxx, KJ10xx
No agreements. I can understand 1s-p-2s- 2NT or 1s-p-3s-4N for the minors - yes 69% agree with 3NT is a bid to play.

Hi Brad,
What was your experience at the resent Buffalo Regional and why you chose that tournament over others?

Put the device in the middle and/or ask “Who will push the button?” For subsequent boards you give it to the one who actually did it the previous time.

How about this for a differences - I want to be able to make a revoke, and missort my cards mixing clubs and spades, hearts and diamonds or even bid out of rotation.
I want to look at opponents and their behavior, not count on speed of my ISP and computer and I want to get unfair or fair rulings from a live TD.
That's why online and F2F competitions are different.
All the guy wants it to present another form of statistics - use it at your risk.
BTW this is “Online” discussion where naturally the “Online” point holders outnumber pure F2F “never used a computer for bridge” players.

You are bidding 7 over 5 with Axx AKQxxxx Axx void? Expecting partner to cover 4 losers? What's the rush?

Right - top or bottom: -4000 since were 7-6

Opener hand:
AQ832
AKQ10742
void
10

Yuan suggests axing the partnership - who axes who, or assign the blame.
Suggestion: since a decision was made to bid on 7 level, why not bid 7?

How big is the risk? Partner must have at least 8 solid , A, A (he is not bidding a grand with nothing in and loser), put together K, AK = 13 tricks, may be more.
Unless…. his control is also a void.
Void opposite void - not in my lifetime. So lets bid 7NT. Went pass, pass, double, redouble, all pass.
Who can guess what is the final score?

So really?? Nobody thinks partner MUST have diamond A for bidding 7 H? It is matchpoints - 7NT anyone??

Larry - what is your main reason for deciding on 1430 vs. 0314 and UDCA/o-e vs. standard carding? Isn't 0314 and std played more at the clubs across North America?
