Yes, the bidding is crazy. I bid one heart...my 'partner' passed. He/she had 14 points and 4 hearts(K,10 and 2 small)!!!

I was wondering if anyone else had a problem with the bidding.  Laughably, my "partner" had an eight card suit with 10 points and never mentioned it over my opening bid. 

 

Later, I opened one spade, partner replies 1 NT (with 8 points, a void and a singleton) and 6 spades opposite my 5, but passes my second suit with 2 diamonds, leaving me with 6 trumps and an 11 card "off" suit. 

 

Crazy.  So crazy I'm surprised anyone bothers to play the game.  Bidding seems almost random.  Who programmed this thing?

Hello @ddh100, in our bridge game each player plays against the computer (i.e., it's not a multiplayer game for us). Thanks for your question!

I agree that the robots are poorly trained and the bidding is often atrocious. I've had my partner respond to my opening bid of 1 of a suit by passing when he/she has an opening hand themselves (very frustrating). Is there anyone at AARP who monitors the games or reads the comments to try to improve them?

I only find robots who play and bid horribly.  I'm trying to find out how to play with people.

Are there real players other than myself who play in each Bridge game or is it all computer generated? Also, does this Bridge game use Stayman and Transfers?
