Playing with the robots is always an adventure. I believed I had learned most of their "tricks," then this deal:♠2 ♥A K 9 ♦A K Q 10 5 4 2 ♣Q J.
I opened 1♦, left-hand robot overcalled 2♠. pard passed and right-hand robot bid 3♦. I have a nice hand, but limited defense, so decided to bid 5♦. I've found if you pass and they bid game and then you bid 5♦, they always double. It passed out.
LHO led the ♠K followed by a low one to RHO's ace and my ♦10. I led a trump to dummy, West throwing a club, ruffed the last spade high and drew the last trump as West discarded a second club.
West's void in diamonds was good news. I'm going down one or two, but they can likely make game.
I exited with the ♣Q. West took his king, led another to East's ace. East led a third round of clubs, ruffed. West had shown up with five clubs, likely had six spades, so had a doubleton heart. I decided to play East for the ♥Q 10. I led a diamond to dummy, advanced the ♥J and East played the 10 under it!
Against a human, I would sneer at him and finesse, but a robot? Here's the deal:
I was down two for a 48.9% board. Notice that 4♠ was cold.
