I just don't get it. I pay money to play against robots, and they respond to my opening bid with 3 jacks.
1D - 1H and he has 3 jacks. Do you programmers not know a *****ed thing about how to play bridge?

You should post a link to the hand, or create a hand diagram using the editing icon shaped like a spade with reddish horizontal stripes. There are many hands that expert responders would bid on that have 3 HCP or less. That is not to say that GIB is an expert but in general, you can't analyze a bid without seeing a hand.

GIB frequently passes opening bids as responder so it might be interesting to see this hand.

It's hard to help without seeing the hand. But GIB certainly can respond with fewer than 6 HCP - just like humans can and often do.
Please let me know about any questions or interest or bug reports about GIB.
