The program is quite fast. You can choose between five different game speeds, from extremely fast to extremely slow.
The human player is always south, and his hand is always shown on the right of the screen, with the statement on the left. To declare we must write two characters, the first being the level (1 to 7) and the second the first letter of the suit (in English, this is “H” for hearts, “D” for diamonds, “C” for clubs and “N” for spades. We can also indicate “D” (Double), “R” (Redouble), <SPACE> (do not declare) and “E” (receive a new hand). The game of the other three players runs on behalf of the computer.
