Click Deal to start
Settings Enter a range in the appropriate box to constrain lengths, freakness and/or HCP. For example, to deal strong notrumps enter Freakness 0-2 and HCP 15-17. You may also enter an exact value (Hearts 5) or append a plus sign for minimum (Clubs 4+). Note: Extreme settings require intense calculation and may be rejected to avoid overloading the server.
Swap Enter suits to randomly swap. Examples: To deal hands with a 5-card or longer major, set Spades 5+ and Swap SH. To deal a generic pattern, set a specific pattern (at top) and Swap SHDC. Check Hands to randomly swap the two hand settings.
Dealer Select Default, Random, West, North, East or South. Vulner Select Default, Random, Zero, N-S, E-W or Both.
