Bernard Magee and QPlus

From July 2012 to January 2014, Bernard, Britains's best-known bridge teacher, commented on a QPlus (the very best Acol-playing software available) hand each week.

How to Play the Hand in QPlus

Select: DEAL / Match Control
This brings up a menu box:
Check 'Deal number' in the top left hand corner of this box.
Move to the line below and fill in the number of the deal.
(eg deal 900-01 is filled in with: major: 900 minor: 01)
Check the Scoring Method as 'Pair (MP)'
