Software designed to accompany the three new books in the popular PYB series, which allows players to learn new conventions, then practice using them by bidding with the computer. Includes teacher-friendly features, such as the ability to print out a complete hand diagram for each deal. Based on the popular Bridge Buff software from BridgeWare Inc. When the Practice Your Slam Bidding software appeared in 2003, the American Bridge Teachers' Association said 'If you liked the books, you're going to love the CDROM.'
"This extra feature (the Random Hands) in itself probably justifies any price differential between the books and the software."

"If you enjoyed Barbara Seagram and Linda Lee's three books in their Practice Your Bidding series recently printed by Master Point Press, you'll love the new software. The advantage of the computer version is the ability to print the hands that interest you. For teachers, this is of extreme importance as you get complete hand diagram printouts for all examples. In addition, you get as many more practice hands as you may want when you select the random hands feature. Probably the most important feature of this software is the fact that if you point to a bid, a bubble pops up to tell you what that bid would mean. You can then decide if you want to keep your bid or the recommended one. The author also tells when not to use a bid. For example, when to use Jacoby 2NT or a splinter bid. I particularly like the ability to do interactive bidding with a computer partner. After all, both partners need to be on the same wave length. The software has an excellent tutorial to get you started."
