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 Bridge Baron (US) which eclipsed the field by 10 points (greatest winning margin ever) with an excellent score of 51. Bridge Baron was also the only bot to beat the average human score of 45.92. The new Version 16 could be a bidding dynamo, though it’s premature to pass judgment — bots sometimes get lucky, too. I’ll be interested to see how it fares in the upcoming play contest. Will GIB and Jack be worried?

The bots were well behaved this month, with only three errant calls. On Problem 5, Blue Chip Bridge had an accident, passing 2 H in an obviously forcing auction. On Problem 6, Bridge Buff and Micro Bridge both passed the 7-5 hand (I agree); but when partner opened 1 S, both responded 1 NT (ouch). None of the wayward calls have any merit (arguably worth zero) but are scored the same as the worst listed option.

I was curious which bots would open the bidding with the controversial 12-count on Problem 5, which I believe should be passed. Openers were Bridge Baron, Bridge Buff, Blue Chip Bridge and GIB. Passers were Micro Bridge, Q-plus Bridge, Jack and HAL. An exact tie! Of course, I had to threaten HAL to get its vote, and ended up breaking its monitor with a crowbar. Oh well; time to order Version 9004!
