Hi Uday, hi Fred,
I found another bug with in the GIB's FD-CC playing bridge for money:
My GIB-partner opened 1 NT, RHO bid 2 (I guess it was alerted as Cappaletti).
I wanted to play 2 and looked at the tooltips of my possible bids 2 and 2 by clicking the 2 and mousing over the suit-symbol. Both said something like "to play".
So I bid confidently 2. My partner answered 2 (alerted as "Xfer done").
In a highly competitive bidding my Gib bid up to 5. Luckily the other Gib bid 6.
I posted the hand on my blog.

Regards

Al

Strange. Whenever I've opened 1NT and there has been interference by LHO, GIB always bids naturally.

BTW, I don't think GIB uses FD-CC. It has its own bidding database, unrelated to Full Disclosure.

Hi Al,

It sounds like you need to update the copy of GIB running on your hard disk to the latest version. I don't can't seem to find the link that will do this (I haven't looked very hard), but you can accomplish the same thing be reinstalling the Windows version of the BBO client through:
