IF YOU are a beginner at Bridge you will find Buffer's Super Bridge a useful supplement to the terrors of the card table.

The program is not intended as a tutor, though the instructions contain the rules of Bridge and some useful tips. As the program is designed round the Acol system, some explanation of that bidding convention might also have been included but there are plenty of books if you are interested.

Super Bridge is a playing program and has three main displays, all of which are muted colours and easy on the eye, an important feature for a game which can last a long rime.

Screen prompts leave no doubt as to what you need to do next. At the end of each hand there is the choice of viewing all four hands or going to the next deal.

Super Bridge is a versatile and well-made program which will assist players in live games. The only criticism, albeit minor, is that the program allows only one human player. With an option for two there would have been the opportunity for a pair to sharpen their skills.
