Playing with the Robots

BBO Robots

Bidding conventions are explained for every bidding option. You just hover your mouse what you are thinking to bid and it is explained what it is supposed to mean. Never played 2/1? RKC? Great way to learn!!

The robots do not help as much human defenders. Thus your declarer play cannot help but get better.

Things I have learned:

I am not as huge a fan of Notrump as I used to be. I have gone down 3 more times then I would like to remember against the robots.

Robots do not understand competitive bidding so you need to be cautious when bidding again or just going to game.

      You didn't mention one of the best and most helpful clubs on BBO - Beginner Intermediate Lounge (BIL - BILies Retreat, Public Club). If you join the BIL you can get a mentor, lessons, special events and tournaments...the best club for beginner and intermediate players.
