Names with accented or non-English letters have been converted to an English representation with a 26-letter alphabet. Many people use erratic capitalization, so I determine proper case by algorithm; if this does not correctly display your name, please advise and I will add it to the exception list. If you wish to contact someone whose name you see listed (such as a lost friend) give me permission to send your address to that person, then he or she can contact you. I will not give out e-mail addresses (these are private and go nowhere from me).

Bot’s Eye View

I posed these play problems to some of the well-known bridge computer programs, and the results are tabulated below. (These results are not included in the “number of participants” shown above, nor in the calculation of the median or average score.) Most of the programs have different skill settings (thinking time), and this was set to the highest level within reason.* The scores and rankings, based on six specific problems, are not necessarily indicative of each program’s overall capability.

*I do not allow any setting that takes more than a minute to make a play. Time considerations are also used to break ties, i.e., if two bots have the same score, the edge goes to the one using less time. Tests are conducted on a 2.0 GHz CPU with 512 MB RAM, running Windows 98.

Congratulations to Bridge Buff, which topped the bots this month with a fantastic 56 (tying the highest bot score ever). This was barely good enough to edge out Jack with 55, and GIB was close behind at 53. Only two other bots, Blue Chip Bridge and Micro Bridge, managed to beat the average human score.

As usual in multiple-choice contests, some of the bots went off the chart with their choices (shown below as Line G or H). None of these lines deserved any special merit, and I’ll skip the descriptions since it’s almost dinner time. Suffice it to say they were inelegant.

*When a bot chooses an unlisted play, I substitute a listed play if the difference is trivial or negligible. If the difference is significant, I label it as Line G (or H if needed) and score it appropriately — but never lower than the award for the worst listed line.

You’ll notice that HAL is up to a new version number this month, actually a hardware change, which its company was gracious to provide on short notice. The previous machine had to be retired after an unfortunate “accident.” I’m not sure whether it was my shot put or hammer throw, but HAL 9001 is rubble.
