Yesterday, played in my 1st Express Free TCR Automated Fun Tournament :)
After 2 boards, I was on 65% :)
When partner punished me for my slight overbid of 3 :(
Perhaps the software should automatically expel players who habitually leap to daft grand-slams and redouble.
More reasonable:
Partner bid more conservatively :)
But was lucky to find me with 3 aces :)
He still found a line to go down in this cold small slam :(
How might he have made it? :)

Report the player to the BBO Abuse account. There are way too many of these clowns who disrupt the game by making totally frivolous bids. I remember trying out a poker site's free playing area. I found multiple opponents going all in every single hand with nothing which is the equivalent of randomly bidding a grand.

I would say that this declarer would never make it. As I said, this player is a clown, not a "duck".

The method that I try to use is to play the cards in the right order until I've made 12 tricks.
It doesn't always work. Sometimes I have to ask for a replay. This request is rarely granted.
