Dynamic Dealer & Duper
Dynamic Dealer (version 2.15)
Dynamic Dealer is a program that generates bridge hands that, while random, are within parameters set by the user (suit lengths and high card points). This is useful for bidding practice, hand analysis, teaching, and the like. Dynamic Dealer requires Windows.
Dynamic Dealer is shareware. You may use it without payment for a trial period of one month. If you use it after that, you must register by paying $25.

Duper (version 3.25)
Duper is a duplicate bridge utility. You can use it to generate random hands and print them on handouts for postgame analysis. You may optionally print individual sheets for each board to facilitate making the boards at the beginning of a session. You may also use DUPER to record hands that have already been dealt. For example, if you are running a game where the hands have been dealt by the players, during the session you can take boards not in play and record those deals to provide postgame sheets for the players. Duper requires Windows.
Instead of printing handout sheets, or in addition to printing handout sheets, you can create HTML pages of your deals to post on your web site so that your players can review hands from their computers.
Duper also will print a statistics sheet and add statistics to the optionally generated HTML page. Did North-South really "get all the cards" at last Wednesday's session? Now you can tell that, and more, at a glance.
Recent program improvements include support for languages other than English, curtain cards, font control, and several additional features.
Duper is shareware. You may use it without payment for a trial period of up to 3 months. If you use it after that, you must register by paying $25. Certain features, including the HTML capability, are available only upon registration.
