It's a good idea, but I wonder about the algorithms. For example, they gave me this hand. I don't know anyone who would ever be in 6NT; 6, on the other hand, is feasible until you see that ghastly 5-0 break. Also, I know this isn't probably aimed at me, but I can't take it seriously when I go down 2, and it says "Almost made it!". -2 is not almost, and it gives a false sense of accomplishment, especially when you misplay it.

EDIT - link doesn't seem to work, so here they are:

"It's not enough to win the tricks that belong to you. Try also for some that belong to the opponents."

"Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make them all yourself."

"One advantage of bad bidding is that you get practice at playing atrocious contracts."

Always says "Almost made it!" even if you go down more I checked

I like it, I'm getting good at "almost made it".
