My question is, do the robot masters jump to 7H with this hand?

Good bidding by GIB North to leave it in hearts instead of insisting on spades, diamonds or NT. It is easy to see how the bidding could go off the rails and end up in a ridiculous contract :rolleyes:

Nobody expects top-class performance from Gib but WBArtley's deal illustrates how GIB seems to have become more prone to inexplicable bidding lapses. Gib's card-play also seems to be getting worse. On several recent occasions, when successful plays were available, Gib has made plays that could never win, on any lie of the cards.

That's truly hilarious. The robots seem to have a forcing pass in their programming.
I put your hand onto the teaching table in Prime and sat North. After the South robot responded 3 to South's 2 Here is the list of the options available to the North robot:
  • Pass - 11- HCP 12- total points Forcing
  • 3 11-HCP 5-12 total points Forcing
  • 4 splinter
  • and so on

Obviously, it was your fault, the pass was FORCING. you should not have passed. Posted Image. Your bidding needs a lot of work.
non est deus ex machina; även maskiner behöver lite kärlek, J'ai toujours misé sur l'étrange gentillesse des robots.
