You have learnt some basic techniques and have now been playing bridge for about a year but have the feeling that you can do better if someone knowledgeable would advise you. The program Intermediate 1 is exactly what you are hoping for. There are 60 deals to play and 33 deals to defend.
When playing the deals, you will feel as if Marty Bergen is looking over your shoulder and giving you advice and tips to help you find the best way to play the hand or find the best defence.
You will be shown an interactive way to become a better player. When you are playing the deal but don’t play or
defend perfectly, you will get a message explanation what you should have done. You also have the option to let the
program ask you questions about the play. Every bridge player should ask these questions themselves before playing a
card. By answering the questions you will learn the best approach. Once you are used to asking yourself these type of
questions, you will have made a big step in improving your play and becoming a better opponent.
The bidding system is based on Standard American. However, the auction is always provided for you so this program is appropriate for all players.
To use the app, no internet connection is needed.
