6D gets only 7 in scoring.
6D is played best from East, not from West, as in the scoring.

Board 7
No score for 3S.
No score for 4D.

You can bid with yourself if you create another nick.

I think a feature which allows a single player to bid the hands with themselves as partner. Maybe insert a 24 hour delay before sending the hand back for next bid. Seems good for a person to yell at themselves Smiley

We can develop BQ in more directions, but because of lack of time, we can develop only one of them. Help us deciding what should we develop first:

Partnership Defense - Pair must solve defensive problem on a prepared board and computer is always declarer. Everything should look very much the same as bidding contest. The difference is of course that this time you are not bidding, but playing cards with your partner. You could solve many boards at once, playing one card and then waiting for your partner. For serious partnerships this is probably most interesting feature.

Dealer - A set of boards is dealt under user defined constraints. Then pair bid these boards in similar style as bidding contest. We could allow opponents to intervene. This feature would be similar to what BBO is offering as bidding practice. Bidding would be similar to current bidding contest style - players not necessary logged at the same time, archive of old boards and reports. Of course there would be no scores for final contract.

Declarer Play - You are declarer, computer plays defense on predealt bords. If declarer play is not perfect, contract goes down.

Thanks. I looked up that set and it seems BIN magazine has put cards and scoring wrong. So I just added your score since they looked good  Smiley

Thanks for telling me. Of course it should have been 3NT=10, not 3S...

Wow this set is a mess.

On this board, 6C is completely cold and should be the top spot (rather than scoring 3/10). Also, 6D will usually make and should receive a nonzero score (but not as good as 6C).

Both 7C and 7NT require a favorable lead to make. However, as long as hearts are not lead they will make. They should probably receive nonzero scores (but low ones).

3NT will sometimes fail (can lose five heart tricks) and is obviously lower scoring than 6C making. Rather than being the top spot, this should be somewhere below 6D (but above the grand slams and 6NT). I would recommend:

6C 10
6D 8
5C, 5D 6
3NT 4
6NT, 7C, 7D, 7NT 2

This hand reserves the top spot for playing 3S in a 3-3 fit. It seems like 3NT is pretty good on the likely club lead, and has some play even if they find a spade lead, yet 3NT receives a zero. Perhaps 3NT and 3S should have the opposite scores.

There's also a failure to explain the 2C opening and 3C raise by opponents -- since many people do play 2C as a strong artificial bid, it may be worth explaining them as "natural."
