HOW TO: Importing hand records

Last Updated: Jun 24, 2015 03:23PM CEST

Summary

Hand record files of pre-dealt boards can be imported into Bridgemate Control Software (version 3.1.2 and higher) and used for printing hand record sheets or for uploading to the Bridgemate app.
 


Procedure

Hand records in PBN (Portable Bridge Notation), DUP (Duplimate) or Big Deal CSV format can be imported to the current session in Bridgemate Control Software (BCS). Imported hand records can then be uploaded to the Bridgemate II system (to allow the tournament director to review the hand records from the Bridgemate devices), printed on hand record sheets including makeable contract information, or uploaded to the Bridgemate app.

To import hand records, go to menu File - Import.

Import hand records

If you play one section, or multiple sections with identical hand records, select Import a file to all sections, and specify the hand record file by clicking on the "browse file" button:    Browse file
If you play multiple sections and each section has its own set of hand records, select Import a separate file to each section and specify the file for each section.

Click on Import file(s), the hand record files are now imported into your session in BCS.

After the files have been imported, the following actions can be performed automatically:

  • Analyse makeable contracts (double dummy analysis). Each hand record is analysed and the information about makeable contracts is stored in the session file. When you print hand records in BCS (go to menu File - Print), the makeable contracts are included on the printed hand records.
  • Upload hand records to the Bridgemate app. Automatically upload the imported hand records to the Bridgemate app. Makeable contracts are included as well, so this analysis is also performed.
  • Upload hand records to the Bridgemate II scoring system. Upload the hand records to the Bridgemate II scoring system. This allows the TD to review the hand records from the Bridgemate devices.
