about me

Bridge Goth is a American 30 year old bridge player from Oklahoma who has played on professional teams as well as taught bridge professionally. Through the years as a bridge player he found that had a huge library of hilarious stories that he would like to share with the world about the game of bridge. He also loves to answer bridge questions and help other people out who are looking to improve their game. He has written his own bidding system called The Finnish Club which has been proven successful in tournament play. He is one of the few in the world to be fully versed in the world famous "Fantunes" system. Later he was able to combine to 2 systems and create the highly effective "Finntunes" system, which corrects the many flaws of Fantunes.




Inventor of: Mylläri, Skipbo, Turunenbo, 5LTFmA2NT, Nightwish, Jansen, as well as the Finntunes system. More information about these provided upon request.

Yusuf Sohtorik's bidding problem: KJT753 AQ7 6 KQ6
I used to think I had to bid on these hands, a couple -800s quickly changed my mind. The cards are behind us, and we rate to have transportation issues on top of it.
Is filing a recorder form warranted.
If no one documents anything, then how would we ever know if it's a pattern? If you think there could be, then yes, you should fill one out.
FP again
This is a very flawed approach. You can no longer double to just show some cards and a willingness to compete since you're now forced, plus when it's actually the opponent's hand, you're locking yourself in for a bad result. Just because we have more points ...
Peter Bonfanti's bidding problem: AK982 JT2 A A872
3nt seems like a no brainer, especially at matchpoints. We don’t need to be chasing down pushy slams and locking in a zero when we get too high or forced to play 5. Even in imps 3nt looks clearcut with slam so far away and no reliable way ...
FP again
I honestly have no idea why this would be forcing. We never showed the values for game or even a good fit, meanwhile they are making powerful bids.
What should the selectors do?
How can having open ended/discretionary criteria be right? That is so easily manipulable to get the result the powers at be want that what's the point of having a criteria at all? It should be cut and dry what the criteria is and should be made known before ...
At least then 4 would be making, not a huge loss in imps.
Adam Meyerson's bidding problem: AKJ532 A4 KQ AQ7
I don’t see a need to do more. We aren’t fitting partner and we have a minimum 2 opening. I don’t like 3, sounds like we are scared of NT
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: AT985 86 97432 3
Considering 3nt over preempts does not promise a balanced hand I think I’ll go with a no on that one.
I don’t think 5 was egregiously bad either. Also to lose your right as a non offending side, the action generally must be unrelated to the offense as well as a serious error. In this case 2 was ridiculous and imo directly resulted in the poor judgement ...
