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 3.4 GHz CPU with 512 MB RAM, running Windows 98.

Congratulations to Bridge Buff (Canada), which resurged from a quiet spell to capture the top spot with 49, an excellent score in what proved to be a tough contest. Second place went to Jack (Netherlands), which posted the same score but took longer (more thinking time) to supply its answers. No less than six bots topped the average human score (38.33).

Bots were well-behaved this month, except for Q-plus bridge in two cases: On Problem 1, it led the C 5, which is clearly worse than the winning C 10 but far better than some; scored as 6. On Problem 6, it led the C Q, an aberration of immense proportion (crashing partner’s jack); scored as 1 (same as worst listed option) but deserving zero.

As a side activity this month, I was curious how many of my forced opening leads would be chosen by the bot crew. I expected a general agreement, as most of these leads were pretty normal. Problem 1: All agreed with the S K. Problem 2: Bridge Baron led the D A; all others agreed with the S J. Problem 3: All agreed with the H Q. Problem 4: Blue Chip Bridge led the S 8; Q-plus Bridge led the S 9; all others agreed with the C K. Problem 5: All disagreed with the D J and led the singleton heart. Problem 6: Bridge Buff and GIB led the S 5; Bridge Baron led the D Q; all others agreed with the C K. Interesting.

HAL was distraught with its dismal showings in past contests and decided it was about time to “call a spade a spade.” Amazing! A little science almost doubled its typical score.
