It's really great that BBO decided to make Bridge Master free of charge. Thanks a lot! :)

In case BBO decides to improve Bridge Master, I would suggest two things. Firstly, an option to claim and secondly, an option to remove the sound of the played cards in the solution.

How would this be coded? If you use the normal logic, a lot of the hands would accept a trick 1 claim..
Feel free to send me a friend challenge of any format as often as you like. I'll always accept :)

I guess the idea is that once you get past the tricky part of the problem, you should be able to claim.

E.g. you solved the problem, and taken some more tricks, now you're just down to running your remaining winners.

Obviously a teaching tool like this shouldn't allow claims when there are any "interesting" decisions remaining. In particular, it shouldn't be as liberal as GIB.

Exactly this.

Though I admit I do not know the difficulty coding this.

I agree BridgeMasters being available for free is great! To be honest, I hadn't even realised it was now available in the web version.

Being able to claim only when we have the rest in top tricks would be good already.
Obviously we have a recall bias in favour of the assholes. -helene_t

Of course, before we can think about adding new features to Bridge Master, we're going to have to convert it from Flash to JavaScript so it will keep running when Flash goes away.

This was wrong, I forgot we already did this. BM is available in the mobile app and HTML preview version.

But we also still have work to do to migrate more features of the Flash version to HTML.

It's in the "Practice" section of the web and mobile versions of BBO.
