Hand Evaluation

Normal methods are used for counting points:

  • High Card points (H)
    • Ace.....4 points
    • King....3 points
    • Queen..2 points
    • Jack....1 point

  • Distribution points (D)
    • Doubleton...1 point
    • Singleton....2 points
    • Void.........3 points

  • Length: 1 additional point for each card in excess of 6 in any suit

The program will modify these values to take into account unprotected honours, sequences etc.
In Wbridge5, the number of high-card and distribution points is shown for each hand, together with the number of Quick Tricks
