AARP ONLINE BRIDGE GAME

Please forgive me - I MUST once again voice my frustration with the AARP Bridge algorithm.  Our EXCLUSIVE "partner" has not improved.  Rather, he has gotten WORSE.  I take this Bridge algorithm, as I must, as an exemplar of AARP competence.  How can ANY of us give ANY AARP program any credibility in light this shoddy performance???

It is very hard for me to believe that my computer partneer would pass when it has four of my trumps and 12 high card points.  Not even an idiot would program in this fashion.

Fun game to play. I will try looking for a live game now after practice.

how does tnc keep scoring over 20,000 points?  For how long can you play a solely defensive game

amen to playing with real people.   I always have to play with that dingbat guy that passes with 15 points in his hand....or doesn't support a bid suit!!   If real people are a problem, why not switch partners at least.   Also....how in the world can you score 20,000 plus points in one set?!!!

Yes, the exact same thing happens to me.  Are these real people; or not?

No, you are playing with robots.  Sometimes there's just no accounting for how they play.  Today I opened with one diamond and had five.  My robot partner had eleven points and five diamonds but passed.  Sometimes either my partner or the opponent robots will sluff trumps.  Sometimes my partner will trump my aces. ????

Apparently the outrageously high scores actually happen but may be engineered by the program.  If the robot opponents get vulnerable on the first game and go nuts with the bidding, you can set them several tricks on a double. I have never had a partner redouble here.  If (while salivating) I redouble a bid, my bot pard will then bid again, cancelling the redouble.  Also, if you open 1NT everyone will pass 100% of the time. I have had a bot partner sluff trumps causing us to go set and also had pard trump my Ace or other obviously good card. Many other strange things happen here and recognizing the eccentrics of the program will help you.  ( Have you noticed that the bots mostly will not take their partner's trick (in the lead at the time) even if it's, say an five or eight  and it is extremely likely to be picked up by us human opponents?  Good Luck!  This program is like playing with novice players with Alzheimer's.

I too have had all these experiences.  Very frustrating.

Two examples:  1.  The winning bidder always leads out all of his/her trump card, even when not necessary.  2. All three players sometimes bid game when a lower bid would suffice.

Hi leon. I think i played with you the other day and it seemed more normal. I agree that there are some very weird players(not only bots) on this site. I wonder how many really know the bridge game. I have been totally frustrated when I open 2nt and my partner passes with 7 or more points. Also, why do I seem to be playing the hand when its my partners contract.Bridhge Base is more credible but pretty slow sometimes. I will not play with bots if I can help it.I  hope I meet you again.

I completely agree.  I cannot see how some one can score over 10,000 in one round.  My partner is a dingbat!!   How can you get no response with a no trump opening?

What I would like to know is how bridge scores can exceed $20,000+ points.

Responce of pass to a 1 no trump bid is ok if you have a 3 3 3 4 mix and no points. It happens
