I am new here so this is probably one of thise questions which has been asked (and answered) before but I cannot find it anywhere on the forum.

Where can I find a detailed description of the computer's bidding methods?  The little pop-up alert boxes with mini descriptions don't quite do it for me - firstly there aren't enough of them but secondly they are far too terse.

For instance, I opened a weak-2 and my computer partner responded 2NT - 'alerted' as a Relay enquiring about my strength - there are two quite different workable methods  here and of course I chose the wrong one (another bottom!) - I assume now that the right one will be part of La Majeure Cinquieme but I do not have an up to date reference (my French bridge books date back to the 1980's)

So - where can I get (on the web) a description which covers that part of French Standard which is included within Funbridge - I don't mind if it is in French because I can translate it with my wife's help.

May I also say that I think FunBridge is an excellent product - even if it is beset at present by, er, unfortunate, implementation difficulties - since June 1st it seems to be working Ok.

I don't have Funbridge 1 to compare it against so perhaps that colours my view - it is always difficult to have changes thrust upon one.  By the way - who is that guy sitting West? I'm sure I've met him at tournaments -I notice that he still hesitates in the bidding a lot - how do I call the director?

It is true that my computer partner often makes me want to tear my hair out but isn't the same true of pick-up partners anywhere - at least I can shout at Funbridge without offending anyone - except perhaps my cat snoozing next to the monitor.

Terry,

If you (or your wife) can read French, you can have a look at http://jro.fb.free.fr/bridge5fb.php

It is not a complete tutorial but contains enough information to survive in most cases...

Regards,
Pierre.

Thank you Pierre - very much

That is (almost) exactly what I wanted - of course in English would have been more exact  :)

I will get busy reviewing it and translating it - when (if) I complete that task maybe it should be published for the non-francophones on FunBridge

Regards,
Terry (sidecar)

I have not played bridge for... maybe longer than the age of many members here. My bible at the time was Winning Contract Bridge Complete by Edgar Kaplan.
I just loved the way that the author explained in often a humorous way the principles behind the rules. He tried to make us understand why we used each convention. This sure dates...four card majors were used.
I had played some duplicate bridge. My wife is not a card player so for the last 25 years no real bridge. The possibility of being able to play on the internet is quite a bonus.
I can see the aggressive bidding to fight for part score in the duplicate world.
I would love to buy a modern duplicate bridge book that could become my new reference book and system. I would love a simple system.
I would appreciate any help.
Regards,
Paul Picard
