The Rueful Rabbit — Down the rabbit hole…

At Long Last

Dear Bridge Players,

I’ve got two things to tell you, one important, the other not so important.

It’s with great pleasure that I’m announcing the first publically available Bridge Hand Database. This is something that I’ve wanted for years and in the end I had to create it myself.

This bridge tool allows you to search through hands played by the world’s top experts. It should prove invaluable to system designers who want to copy or build on the best of current expert knowledge.

Whats the web site???

How does it work?

You simply register with a Username and Password and your email. An activation link is sent to the same email address which, when confirmed allows you to login and search.

I want to pay credit to Fred Gittleman & Bridge Base Online for the data, Richard Pavlicek (for his article on bridge databases) and Nickos Sarantakos (Viewgraph Project)

End Bit
Finally, the useless piece of information – My real name!
My apologies to all of my friends that I’ve lied to (saying that I am not the Rabbit) over the last 18 months.

Have a good game,

James Heneghan aka Rueful
