Replaying Hands with Bridgify


Have you ever played a hand and wondered if you could have made it? There is a great, FREE, double-dummy analyzer you can use. Click here to download Bridgify. Unzip the executable (.exe) to somehwere (desktop is good). Now,

  1. Bring up a game from Club Game Scores - Wichita.
  2. Near the top of the recap, click on PBN.
  3. Click file-save, placing it where you can find it.
  4. Bring up Bridgify (by double-clicking on the desktop icon).
  5. Click on load-open file and open the file you saved in step 3.
  6. Click on the hand you wish to play.
  7. Click on the contract or denomination icon by the hand you want to be declarer.
  8. Select the card you wish to play. Continue this to try different lines of play.

I prefer the above method to replay a hand in Bridgify (because you can replay more than one by just clicking on "load" and selecting another hand). However, there is another way.
  1. In the recap sheet, click on "C" button that is under the Double Dummy Makes for the hand you wish to replay. This brings up a Cut-and-Paste Aid.
  2. Under "Bridgify Ready Format", select and copy the top line.
  3. Paste this into the West hand of "New" in Bridgify.
  4. Select/copy the second line of the Cut-and-Paste Aid window.
  5. Paste this into the North hand of Bridgify.
  6. Select/copy the third line of the Cut-and-Past Aid window.
  7. Paste this into the East hand of Bridgify.
  8. In Bridgify, click OK (There is no need to copy/paste into the South hand).
