My NABC Online Practice Tourney Day 1 - "The Wild Way"
I would have gotten a very good score. However, I had no idea his stiff was the KS. If it had been the KH instead, I would have made 3NT easily. It's an example of the kind of poor decisions the robot makes. Most people don't show singleton ...

Thanks, fixed.

The robots are not strong enough to improve with. They make far too many basic bidding errors and erratic defending decisions to rely upon. After a certain point you either give up on the robots or have fun with them. I choose the latter.
Richard Lawson's bidding problem: AKQ98 T9842 T7 5
It's an artificial strong 16-18 with 3 or 4 spades. Wild man that I am, I didn't think this quite qualified.
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: 853 764 87 AQJ64
I would have bid over 2NT
My ACBL NABC Online Individual Journey - Day 1
You're absolutely right about this. It's a play I would have made in my sleep against a human, but the robot so often blindly continues its opening lead suit if ducked that I reflexively ducked. I should have taken more time on that hand.
My ACBL NABC Online Individual Journey - Day 4
Yup. Hard to believe, too. This session more than the other three had me really struggling to understand why the robots were choosing the actions they did.
My ACBL NABC Online Individual Journey - Day 4
My comment was more along the lines of if you have zero keycards you don't usually show your void.

I had planned to rebid 2NT, but the double scared me off.
