One deal from 2018 featuring new entry TCS BridgeBot
Wbridge5 declared 3♥, which depended on not losing a trump trick. After a diamond lead the fourth round of the suit generated a trump trick and down one.
For a carryover into semifinals and final matches, a bot must both win its head-to-head round robin match, and finish ahead of its opponent in the round robin standing. The carryover is then the lesser of the VP difference in the round robin standings and the head-to-head match.
