In problem solving, it is often important not only to find a solution but also to be able to explain it. We use the game of Bridge to illustrate how tactics, which formalise domain-specific expertise, can be used for both these tasks. Our Bridge tactics constrain search to the point where opti- mal strategies can quickly be identified, and also provide the key to explaining these strategies in human-understandable terms. We demonstrate this using a canonical set of single- suit Bridge problems from a definitive expert text. FINESSE 'solv es'these problems in the technical sense that, in addition to always finding optimal solutions (and revealing a 3% error rate in the expert answers), it also explains each solution in simple, clear English text.
