Have you tried the play it again feature? It's been there a while but some people don't know about it
Look in the Results section. Go to the results for a particular date and click on one of the pairs. You can now select the hand and the results you're interested in. Below the hand record, you'll see the play it again button. If you click on that it may initially give you an option of which programme to use. It doesn't matter which you choose, you can change it later. I suggest the BSOL option. You'll now see the hand with the how many tricks can be made in the different denominations by each position. Select the denomination and declarer and click play. You can then go through the play of the hand. For the hand due to play the optimum cards to play are shown in green and cards which will reduce the number of tricks that side can take are shown in yellow (colours may vary with programme). Of course it always knows when to drop singleton Kings and which way to take a 2-way finesse.
