Jack 6.0 improves upon Jack 5 in ways that will benefit advanced players as well as beginners.
Here are the most significant.
The most recent version of Jacks bridge engine as well as Jacks Bali 2013 convention card. In Computer World Bridge Championship of 2013 at Bali, Indonesia, Jack played better and faster to keep his 2012 title from Lille, France. Now you can use the same methods with and against Jack.

A new tournament scoring method: instant matchpoints. Join a huge pair tournaments and instantly see how you are doing.
Exhanced playing strength. Besides adjusting the playing strength you can now adjust Jacks bidding aggressiveness in detail. Jack himself is not afraid to overbid once in while and if that is something you hate in your partnership you can tone him down!
