Hints for Bridge Clubs using Bridge Analyser:

Dealing: Bridge Analyser can deal random hands for duplicate sessions.  These hands can be printed on curtain cards, on travellers, on hand outs, and to web files that can be uploaded to the internet.  See print options.

Statistics can be printed for each set of hands showing average points for each hand and frequency of different suit lengths and point counts.

A link to Bo Haglund's Double Dummy Solver means a making contracts grid can be printed showing how many tricks can be made by each hand in each suit or no trumps assuming double dummy declarer play and defence.

The set of hands dealt can be pre analysed to ensure a reasonably even split of points between each hand over all the deals, or an even split for North-South to East-West.
All sets of deals can be saved for future analysis, and PBN, DLM or DUP files can be created for input to automatic dealing machines. Deal handouts can also be printed directly, saved as pdf files or saved in web (htm) format.  Deal sets can also be saved to a database with a unique identifier code for future use or compilation of annual statistics.
A significant number of options exist for biasing the deals - see the teaching page.

 

Creating a set of hands for an evening duplicate could not be easier.  You start Bridge Analyser, select Deals + Files from the menu and choose your options from the screen below:

Click to see sample print Click to see sample print Click to see sample print Tick the left button to print the summary, and the right button to add statistics to the end of it Tick left button to print curtain cards, right button to print all North hands on one page, South on another etc. Include NS will print pair numbers in sequence on each line, otherwise it is left blank for top down scoring.  2, 3, 4 per page has room for 40, 24 or 13 pairs to score. Enter your or your bridge club name so it prints as a header on the page, and save it so it appears automatically in future. Tick the makeable contracts button to analyse each hand and print a grid fo makeable contracts on the hand print outs When ticked you get an option to save the hand for future retieval.  Teachers can build up a library of all their lessons this way. When ticked Dealer is always South - useful for sets of teaching hands where it is easier to orientate yourself to a hand focussed on South Set the maximum point deviation from average for each hand (or NS vs EW) over the full set of hands so players cant complain that they had no cards all evening. You can print only N-S or only E-W hands here.  Usefull for bidding practice or teaching sets. Shows if this is a random set of deals or you have set a bias (this prints on the second header line of handouts)

Placing your mouse over any button shows a tool tip that describes what the button does so you seldom need to lookup the help files to do whatever you want.
