Product Description

Blue Chip Bridge is the intelligent bridge program for players of all standards, with extra features for beginners and improving players

Learn with Blue Chip Bridge is the new way of teaching yourself how to play bridge. Many would-be bridge players are discouraged from learning bridge because they think that it is too difficult a game for them. Bridge is a difficult game - but whatever your age or standard of play, the continuing challenge of solving its puzzles and problems can give you a life-long interest unavailable with simpler games. Learn with Blue Chip Bridge (an integral part of the Blue Chip Bridge package) leads you step-by-step through the basic stages. By the end of the course, you should be able to take your place at the bridge table with confidence and a thorough understanding of the elements of the game.

For improving players, Blue Chip Bridge has a range of features to help you learn more about the game. You can practise your bidding skills with natural and conventional bids using Bidding Practice, and use the program's Bidding Tutor and Playing Tutor to receive hints and expert advice as you play random deals. If you have just learned some new conventions, you can ask Blue Chip Bridge to play them too. The program knows a wide range of the most popular conventions, including Transfers, Negative doubles and Landy and many more.

Players always like to know if they could have done better. "Could I have made that contract ?" At the end of a deal, the program's unique Hindsight feature is able to tell you immediately. Hindsight will show you on-screen the point where you made your last error. You can replay from that point or watch as Blue Chip Bridge shows you the winning line of play ! And if that isn't enough, Hindsight might also be able to show you how you could have bid to a better-scoring contract !
