BBO scalability suggestion
Barry, I hope nothing in here is construed as criticism of BBO. As I have said elsewhere, I think BBO has done an amazing job. I was merely offering a suggestion.
BBO scalability suggestion

Book recommendation please (or other material)
Thank you for all the input. I did tell one little untruth. I said my wife never played. Well she did--once. Many years ago I bought her a program, I think it was GIB but am not really sure. Well she played one board and had a lot of clubs ...
