A long time ago, I used to practice with Autobridge,
a simple little learning box into which one could slide printed out bridge hands.
These hands were organized by categories, and came with due explanations
on the back of the page.
Back in those days I could spend all night
is the 2011 web version of
that box where you can play the hands from within your favorite web browser, PC
Simply put, reporting bridge hands on a blog / website / bridge magazine / e-Book
is a 2D (2 dimensional) process
The hand is printed on the page and there is no interaction from the player.
As opposed to Vu-Bridge hands, which are in "3D": the reader becomes a player
and discover the hands as if he sits at the table.
Only experts can read a hand "2D" and make it become "3D" in their mind
Other solar system denizens (for the most part humans, in addition to the Rueful Rabbit, the Toucan and the Walrus) stay locked in "2D" and will benefit from a link to play the hand in VuBridge.
Here is the best example I've found so far:
Click to Play "The Substitute" hand
Don't miss it if you don't now the hand!
Then compare with reading hands from any website!
Vu-Bridge is free!...
And my goal is to build up a large bridge players community, gathering:
