This CD-ROM is an interactive companion to three books in the Practice Your Bidding series by Barbara Seagram & Linda Lee: Jacoby 2NT, Roman Keycard Blackwood, and Splinter Bids. It includes:
- All the material , hands and quizzes from the books
- Interactive bidding with a computer partner
- Complete hand diagram printouts for all examples (great for teachers!)
- Software that will produce as many more practice hands as you want, and then bid them with you
"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."
