Answer
Hi,

The only information I can offer is this website listing the probability of various high card point counts in a given bridge hand. The last column gives that information. For example, the probability of being dealt a 13 point hand is 6.91% and the probability of being dealt a 15 point hand is 4.42%. Using the chart, you can calculate the probability of having, for example, 13 high card points or more is 26.79% and the probability of a 15-17 point notrump hand is 10.09%.

I can answer questions on bidding and on cardplay with the caveat that the former may necessarily involve some subjectivity. I have been playing tournament bridge for over 20 years and I have won several regional tournaments.
