Zel has a good point. I wonder why we even use humans at all.

Say that declarer has AKQJ9 opposite a small card in the trump suit with the side suits solid having ruffed a couple in the short hand. The normal play would be to play from the top. If you only decline the claim when this line does not work then declarer has a no risk play of a first round finesse knowing that there is a 5-0 trump split out there. If you turn down such claims and declarer tries this then they might well go down. Similarly for other attempts of this nature.


I do not think that a BBO opponent will see you reject claims often enough to notice your tendencies.

For that matter, is there any reason why face to face bridge has to be played at a table at all. We could place each contestant in a booth with a web cam and do the whole thing electronically without losing (most of) the cues that separate f2f bridge from online. Voice-chat can be enabled for partners between hands. From a kibitzer point of view such a set-up would not be a bad thing I suspect.


From a player point of view, not so much.

I play a lot of Solitaire Bridge on BBO and there is no way one can claim when it is obvious all tricks left can be taken.Perhaps a Claim Button could be added for Solitaire Bridge too?Thank you.

The claim button is in the lower left of the playing area.
