Welcome to CICBA Guernsey
World 21st Computer Championship

Hi All

The World Computer Championship is taking place in Lyon France and here is a link to the site with results so far.

https://allevybridge.com/allevy/computerbridge/2017_scores5.html

The reason for telling you about this is that Wbridge5 is a FREE computer bridge program with some 6/7000+ members. It is based on 5 card majors and a strong no trump. It can be adapted to play 3 weak twos or SAYC or weak no trump/4 card majors. I think you will find if you try it that it is both enjoyable and , also, very frustrating sometimes. Some contracts seem unbiddable but the better players seem to find a way to play and bid these If you reach the level of an A or B player you will be consistently playing at a very high standard!! and your local bridge will reach new heights!!!

Do try it and good luck for those who do!
