Want to try that hard hand again at home?
If you have a bridge software programme, you can now download bridge hands that have been posted on our website to replay at home along with any hints and comments that the bridge programme gives you. (Note: only available for pairs events at present).
When you look up your results on the website, go to the page where the scores are displayed. At the top right there is a “Get pbn File” option. Click this and a file will be downloaded to your PC. This file can then be imported into your bridge software program.
Bridge programmes that support this include Bridge Baron, Jack and GOTO Bridge, though this may not work on early versions of these programmes. These software packages can be purchased from any bridge retailing shop such as Bridge NZ, or see other shopping sites on our Links page.
We now have a Supporters page. Please visit and support those who have supported the Club.
