This question already has an answer here:

Are there any good online resources to learn the game. By learn, I mean learn attain the knowledge that one would by buying/reading a good book.

For example, are there any "puzzles" that are well explained that either explain different bidding systems or strategies for playing with the dummy etc.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Here are some:

  • Richard Pavlicek's site on bridge which has puzzles, articles explaining concepts, bidding systems, calculators etc. A very good free resource.

  • The now discontinued deal of the week by Fred Gitelman which is an over the shoulder type of software. Free.

  • Bridge Master and software by other world class players: http://bbi.bridgebase.com/cgi-bin/store/commerce.cgi (not free, but highly recommended).


Many newspapers have Bridge Columns and these are often archived online, e.g.

You can find others by searching for "bridge column".


I am developing a site to practice card play for bridge: akqbridge. There is no bidding - you play set contracts. One key aim is to lower the entry barrier for new players.

  • Bridge has a problem. It is a dying game. We need to come up with ways to lower the entry barrier if we want a resurgence in our game. Of course, I am trying to promote the game. I think all bridge players should. We can't just watch the decreasing numbers at our brigde clubs and do nothing. As an adjunct to my website, I wonder whether it might be possible to interest young programmers by having an AI competition. Without the need to program the bidding, it should be a simpler problem. Are you interested in helping me organize it? – soupman55 Aug 19 '13 at 4:34
