Shark Bridge 1.8
by John and
Shark Bridge was written by John Norris from Denmark. Somewhere around 1995 John started the program as a pure bidding program, which he wrote for fun. Then the program was laid on ice between 1997 and 2001 when he was busy with his newborn twin daughters. Starting 2001 the play part was added to the program to be put to the test against the other bridge programs for the first time in 2006. Today the development of Shark Bridge is a joint venture between John L'Atelier D'Ema and Extensa Development.
In 2009 and 2010 it won the individual event at World Computer Bridge Championship and in 2011 and 2014 Shark won the team event. The competitive success is credited to the human like style of play. That same human like play, makes it very enjoyable and challenging practice companion. Shark Bridge is for the casual player as well as the experts.
John Norris is semi-professional bridge player and Danish bridge champion, he created Shark Bridge to practice against a strong computer robots.
