EXPERT Bridgemaster combines a computer program with a parallel audio cassette commentary to introduce those who already know a certain amount about the game to more expert play.

Terence Reese, bridge correspondent for The Observer and a player of international standing, acted as consultant in the preparation of the program. The tutor package uses 26 prepared deals which are loaded with the operating program and bases its play on the Acol bidding system.

It is possible to play each hand without the voice-over and then return to it to analyse the hand. Not all the hands are full hands, as some are used to demonstrate more advanced techniques like squeeze-play, cue bids trump coups and the like. The computer will play the card automatically if required or alternatively you may play all the hands yourself.

A display of all hands is possible at any time and the hands can be restarted or re-dealt, though in the original form. There is no bulk-in print-out option. There is a bidding screen and a play screen.
