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 bidding 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 had different skill settings (thinking time), and this was set to the highest level.* The scores and rankings, based on six specific problems, are not necessarily indicative of each program’s overall capability.

*Not to exceed 30 seconds per bid. Thinking time is also used to break ties, with the advantage to the bot that was faster.

Congratulations to GIB (US) which topped all the bots, albeit with a mediocre score of 44. Only a point behind in second place was Jack (Netherlands) with 43. This proved to be a tough problem set for automatons, as none attained the average human score of 44.89. Go, humans! We got the tin cans on the run!

As usual, there were a few errant calls (not listed among my choices), but only one was worthy. On Problem 4, GIB chose to bid 4 H, which is eccentric but quite reasonable (and probably should have been listed). Further, GIB continued the auction in exemplary fashion to reach the optimum contract. Considering that 3 H (similar meaning) was awarded 9, I felt 4 H deserved 8. Other errant calls (Bridge Buff bid 3 H on Problem 1, and Blue Chip Bridge passed on Problem 4) were clearly unworthy and scored the same as the lowest listed call.

The nine-bagger on Problem 1 was fun, and I was curious what each bot would really open if not forced to open 1 H. Agreeing with 1 H were Blue Chip Bridge and Bridge Buff. Opening 2 C were GIB, Jack, Bridge Baron and Micro Bridge. Off the wall, perhaps, was Q-plus Bridge, opening 5 H! Still, this was an earthly maneuver compared to HAL, which opened 1 D — an advance splinter. I tried to pursue this but HAL warned me to desist, else the splinter “might end up in my chair and I’d be singing soprano.”
