Call me lazy, but I would like to have feature that BBO sums points in my hand, and display it somewhere on screen near my hand, during licitation.

Best regards,

Vedry

You can hire me to count your points lets say 200 euros per hour.

You do understand that thinking and being able to count are fundamental to the game?
Perhaps you would be happier watching cat videos.
They abound on the internet.

I would like BBO to bid my hand and play my cards. I have better things to do!

Maybe email a weekly report of my masterpoints so I know if I'm improving.

Yeah, very funny.
Putting the sarcasm aside, I think counting your points, quality, shape & distribution is essential.
Having a number pop up tells you very little about your hand.
Searching for your own mistakes is the only way to learn this game. - Fluffy

And no matter what methods you play, it is essential, for anyone aspiring to learn to be a good player, to learn the importance of bidding shape properly. - MikeH

SLOW DOWN! This is not a speedball :)

Different people count points differently in different situations.
