The test session in Opatija Croatia, generated quite some media attention for BCR and Studio diip. Below is an overview of some of the articles about the Bridge Card Reader system. The article on BridgeTopics.com clearly explains BCR to its readers, how it works and for example why a dummy plate is necessary: “The reason for this dummy mat is clear: while the cards from the other players are shown one by one, dummy’s cards are all on view at the same time and the software needs to be able to distinguish which one is played”.
The website of the Nederlandse Bridge Bond shows nice pictures of the finals of the Youth Congress in Opatija, including BCR detecting and identified cards.
