Omar Sharif Bridge by AI Factory incorporates the well-known Oxford Bridge engine. It has had significant success in competition and is ranked among the serious Computer Bridge programs around. In 1998 an earlier version of this program (Omar Bridge) competed in a tournament with six other Bridge programs and the World Bridge Champion Zia Mahmood. Omar Bridge led the field jointly with Zia for several rounds and finished joint top among the computer opponents.
Omar Sharif, one of the world's best known bridge players, with a syndicated newspaper column, and several bridge books to his name, is the natural choice to be linked with this strong bridge program. His endorsement is greatly enhanced by his recorded commentary, providing both bidding and play information.
Omar Sharif Bridge allows you to play Acol, 5 Card majors and Standard American, with the more advanced option of editing conventions and saving them to use as custom systems.
There are separate Beginner and Expert systems to choose from, and a full tutorial supplemented by an extensive beginner's guide for those new to the game. Scores and explanations can be displayed at any time, and takeback and hint are also available.

Cards can be dealt at random, loaded from a previous save, biased towards either an individual or partnership, or entered manually.
