9.Using the GIB tool on BBO

At the end of the tournament, your results are displayed on the screen. You can replay the movie for each hand that you played.

Click on the movie for the particular hand that you are curious to see if another lead was made, what would have happened.

Now, click on the GIB tab before you click the play button. This displays a small number either shown in red or green.
The red indicates if this card is led, the contract will go down and depending on the number on the red it could be down 1 or two or three etc. (In this example, a lead of heart will bring the contract down 1)

The green indicates that the contract will make a plus score and the the green = indicates that the game will just make.

You can use this GIB function at each trick not just on the lead.
