Computer v Hand Dealt Hands

I was interested to hear that there were grumbles about the unfair points distribution in the hands on Monday 19 October.  Several N/S’s felt the computer had been unfair to them.  I wonder what they would have said if they’d had E/W’s hands on Wednesday 21 October which were dealt at the table.  Take a look at the analysis below (only the 32 computer dealt hands are included for Monday)





No. of boards in play



N/S’s average point count

18.8    (47%)

21.8     (54.5%)

E/W’s average point count

21.2    (53%)

18.2     (45.5%)

No. of boards declared mostly by N/S

13   (40.6%)

20    (71.4%)

No. of boards where declarer split 50%-50%


2      (7.2%)

No. of boards declared mostly by E/W

19      (59.4%)

6    (21.4%)

I was North on Monday and East on Wednesday:  lucky me!

'Bridge with Angela' 5th edition

Angela Tompson has updated her popular bridge guide for students and improvers;  this is the fifth edition following upon the success of the earlier versions. The basics are unchanged but Angela has taken the opportunity to include further conventions currently and commonly played, including Benjaminised Acol.

This book commences with the very basics of bridge and goes on to describe the essential elements of bidding. Guidance on play of the cards and defence is included followed by explanations of conventions commonly played.


The Price is £7.95 and can be purchased at the club bar or phone Angela on 01892 526716.
