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.

Walter Schmid's bidding problem: A54 3 AQJ9 AJ854
The solution to this problem is to not missort your hand.

I don't care if it asks for a ham sandwich, you have to let partner know you have all the keycards, that is mandatory and the #1 priority no matter what.
Jeff Sapire's bidding problem: AKJ76 6 532 AKJ7
Even with the black Qs and the A you still only have 10 tricks.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: J3 A82 KQ43 KQT5
If we really belong in the hand, good chance partner will bid again. If we end up going +50 or +100 instead of +140 it's not the end of the world.
ATB missed grand
I see this happen all the time... the keycard bidder never bothers to tell their partner they hold all the keycards, so they bid 6, partner properly assumes they are missing a keycard, and claims 982673572639842 tricks at trick 1. West MUST bid 6 over 6, this will ...
Tomislav šAšEk's bidding problem: x KQJxx AQTxx Qx
The bigger question is why on earth Partner is trap passing with either of your examples.
Floyd McWilliams's bidding problem: Q5 QT73 KQT98 K8
I don't even play that 3 is invitational, even if I did, this is definitely not a 4 bid, especially at matchpoints.
Lech Ohrysko's bidding problem: AK752 6 87 QJT96
We do have more than we could, but it's a bad idea to push hard on obvious misfits, so I'm happy to stop in 3NT.
Ankush Khandelwal's bidding problem: 2 AQT95 AT75 A96
Partner likely would have already stretched to bid 4H if they had a fit, so if we have a heart fit, we're not making game. Also partner could have doubled to show cards, and didn't do that either. It's probably a split deck, I highly doubt we ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: 9754 KQ96 8 AT83
I'm curious what we're even suppose to be considering with this hand.
