uThemes

 

uBid 3.0 has a great e-learning tool built in. Each hand belongs to a theme (opening bid) and a sub-theme (could be answers, overcalls, support doubles or other conventions after the opening bid). Next to bidding random hands you can also select one or more bidding theme(s) and sub-theme(s) you would like to focus on. While bidding you can ask for hints what to bid next and ask for explanations of partner’s bids. After the bidding is finished you’ll receive a scoring and get to see uBid’s suggested auction.

Depending on which plan you have got, you can practice basic, standard or advanced conventions.

  • uBasic: Is part of the uBid Classic plan and offers the possibility to practice basic conventions such as Stayman and Jacoby.
  • uStandard: Is part of uBid Plus and allows you to practice basic and standard conventions, such as Drury and Puppet Stayman.
  • uAdvanced: Is part of uBid Premium and offers you the possibility to enter and practice your own conventions. Moreover you will get access to bidding themes for advanced and expert players hand-picked and explained by an expert.

uStandard

uStandard is based on a modern bidding system and is perfectly suited for people that are playing bridge for a while. It is based on 5 card major, 15-17 NT but you can practice with it even if you are playing another system. After each board you will get a scoring (0-3 stars). All boards including the results, suggested auctions, hints, explanations are developed by Berend van den Bos, a bridge expert from the Netherlands.
