The program gives hints, warns when the bid is not the recommended one, and plays automatically when requested. SmartBridge letsyou play complete bridge rubbers, both for the Bid phase, and for the Play of the hand. Bid is based on a "natural" system, and it is fully implemented (there are openings, overcalls, preempt bids, takeout doubles, and penalty doubles, and also some of the most useful Conventions). The computer plays a good defense, and is able to reach most of the contracts. It is possible to play either in the declaring line, or in the defending line, and it is possible to observe the computer while playing automatically. You can play both rubbers, and tournments (duplicate).
The random hand dealer is very flexible and covers many possibilities (balanced and unbalanced hands, hands with either singleton or void, fit and misfit, high card points).
You can also create your own hands, both by the Editor and by modifying randomly generated hands. You can also save and print hands.
