Man vs Jack                                                    2009 - 2012                                                                 

In 2009, Phillip Martin, an expert player, began a four-year project in which he played against the champion bridge program, Jack. He played one hand at one table, with Jack playing the other three; at another table, Jack played the same cards at all four seats, a challenge setup, producing a comparison result. He posted his results and analysis in a blog he titled The Gargoyle Chronicles. Jack was no match for Martin, who won every contest by large margins.
