Local bridge with Myrnie McLaughlin

Published 12:00 am Sunday, January 29, 2017

These past few weeks I have been doing my own “unscientific” research on the difference between the complexity of computer generated hands vs. personally generated hands, the computer hands supposedly being harder to bid and play.

The results belie this belief. When looking at the slips for the boards I find that there are more variations in the bids and their results in personally generated hands than in the computer generated ones. The computer hands resulted in more uniform suit bids and results. This says to me that it is more difficult to bid and play my hands than the computer ones.

I will continue to alternate card set ups over the next months and encourage your input without your knowing which are which. Have fun and happy playing.

Jan. 20 Evergreen game was a mix of generated and dealt hands. Boards 1-16 were computer and 17-28 were hand made. As stated above 1-16 were uniform and 17-28 were not.
