I believe GIB expects superaccpts of Jacoby transfers to include a side doubleton. You bid the doubleton, unless it's the transfer suit, in which case you jump to 3 of responder's major. I haven't checked to see what it thinks bidding 2NT over the transfer shows (maybe that's the superaccept without a doubleton).

This document says that in competitive auctions, GIB plays:
Negative X. Responsive X. Support X (GIB may do support X with Kx).

Through what level(s)?

Who do we report problems to online? Would be nice to have a BBO userid to send weird hands to.

If you use the web client, when you're viewing a hand you can click on Options and select "Send Robot Report".

BBO Today includes an article titled "New Bridge Robots Released". The article says "this new version features a comprehensive redesign of GIB's Roman Keycard Blackwood rules". Does this mean that bids now mean different things than they previously did, or that GIB now uses different internal standards to determine whether to use or continue with RKCB?

They haven't posted a new convention card, have they? So I think it just means the logic, not the system.

Where is the rest of the system card? Vastly too little.

The categories are:

0-2 cards
3-card
4-card = 4 with poor honors
biddable = 5 cards, or 4 with 4+ HCP or QJTx
rebiddable = biddable + another card
twice rebiddable = rebiddable + another card
strong rebiddable = twice rebiddable with 8+ HCP
solid 6-card = AKQTxx or better
solid 7-card = AKQxxxx or better
solid 8-card = AKJxxxxx or AKxxxxxxx (there are 7 x's)

I've just discovered Robot Bridge, seems like an interesting idea, tried a couple of games, AND . . .

I cannot figure out what kind of system it's playing. Yesterday my robot partner was playing 2/1 with forcing NT (that's what it said in the little box when it bid 1 NT), tonight I got one that had no system, no judgment and lied about its HCP. Is there such a thing as a novice robot? Anyway . . . the description says "ACBL GCC applies." I suppose that's referring to an ACBL convention card, but what does the "G" stand for?

I really need to figure out what's going on or I'm not going to throw away any more money and time.

As I said before, it does seem like an interesting idea, but not if it has me pounding the desk in frustration.

OK, I found the convention card. Hate it. I'll skip the robot bridge unless someday I have the option to skip conventions I detest.

Good luck to you all!

I think that this linked document should be updated to include a definition of "relay points" where it discusses HCP and total points.

For those unfamiliar, relay points are A = 3, K=2, Q=1, supposedly used to improve accuracy of judgement in slam bidding but used by GIB in explanations of bids in a load of situations where no slam is on the horizon
Psych (pron. saik): A gross and deliberate misstatement of honour strength and/or suit length. Expressly permitted under Law 73E but forbidden contrary to that law by Acol club tourneys.

Psyche (pron. sahy-kee): The human soul, spirit or mind (derived, personification thereof, beloved of Eros, Greek myth).
Masterminding (pron. mPosted ImagesPosted ImagetPosted Imager-mPosted ImagendPosted Imageing) tr. v. - Any bid made by bridge player with which partner disagrees.

I suspect this may be related to the problem mentioned in other threads, where GIB is giving totally incorrect explanations that seem to be based on different auctions. We're still investigating this.

What version of BBO are you using when this happens? Windows download app or the web version?

I was using the web version in my example from the other thread.
