Bridge Solver

Bridge Solver


Interactive bridge hand analyser utilising Bo Haglund's well known double dummy solver module.

Calculates makeable contracts, par contracts and par scores for any bridge hand, or for a set of hands.

Select a contract and play the hand interactively to investigate various lines of play. On the opening lead the maximum number of tricks that can be made by the defenders for each possible lead is shown, assuming optimum subsequent play by the declarer and defenders. After each card is played the same information is shown for the next position, the optimum cards being highlighted in green at each stage.

Enhance the experience of browsing session results on bridge websites. Bridge Solver can browse and bookmark websites, and grab hands directly from hand diagrams on web pages hosted on ACBL (several diagram formats, including ACBLmerge), BridgeWebs, Pianola, Bridge Base Online (movie links), EBU Sims, ECatsBridge Sims, Vugraph.com, Bridge-Club.org, and Altosoft.com.au. Analyse the hands through double dummy analysis or interactive card play.

Tap on a link to a .PBN, .DLM, or BBO .LIN file in Bridge Solver's browser to download and import deals. Play the recorded contract(s) from a .LIN file with full double dummy analysis at each step, highlighting where the recorded line of play is non optimal. Follow the recorded line of play or investigate alternatives by choosing a different playable card at any point in the play.

Alternatively, analyse deals input manually or import deals from a PBN, DLM, or LIN file on local storage.

Export deals to a PBN file on local storage.

Great - finally found what I have been looking for!! It sounds simple enough, but I spent some time without success looking for Bridge software for PC which could do just one thing: input any hand manually and then play all hands completely manually in multiple different ways, including on different contracts (even bad/unlikely contracts) and including playing any hand “badly” (ie player doing the "wrong" thing). Even when speaking with people selling Bridge software for PC either the software could not do this or they did not know for sure whether it could. Then I looked at Android Bridge apps, not having much hope since apps are often less capable than PC software. Sure enough the more fancied Bridge apps still couldn’t do this one thing. Then I found Bridge Solver. And it could do this one thing exactly as I wanted! At last!! I needed help with selecting a card on my Android screen (my fingers are too big), but I have a stylus now and it all works brilliantly. Oh, and yes, the other features of Bridge Solver (in conjunction with being able to do this one thing) help me to learn and improve at Bridge greatly! Well done and thank you to John Goacher.

Irreplaceable A must for every keen bridge player with analytical mind. I added my top sites to the Favorites. This leads me to my favourite result pages in a matter of seconds. Wouldn't be without it .

Too Much Work Nice idea, find actual hands from outside sources and bid them. That is, until you try to find a game to play. Spent 10 minutes scrolling thru club websites and found nothing usable to play. UNINSTALLED - worthless.
