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.

Steve Tyer's bidding problem: QT9643 AK64 J Q5
I bid 3, showing limit+ in .
David Corn's bidding problem: AQJ94 7 AQJ983 5
Well the 1 bid behind me will certainly slow things down, but I'm not going to give up yet. I'll bid a cautious 2 and see where we go from here.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: J653 7 KQJT65 Q7
Opening 3 with 4 spades on the side is too risky at imps. Opening 1 with an aceless 9 count is also likely to get us in trouble. I'm happy to pass now and see what happens, there's a good chance I'll be able to ...
Paul D East's bidding problem: T5 JT9872 K6 K83
4 at imps, but need to give partner some breathing room in this position at matchpoints.
David Parsons's bidding problem: 4 QT982 83 86542
If partner has useful cards, we're going to get too high. If he doesn't, we're inviting a number, afterall LHO has not limited his hand, and likely has a good hand. Either way, we're setting ourselves up for disaster.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: T97 A T7 AK98542
or bid 5 with x xxxxx Axxx xxx? That's not even a 4 bid and game is great barring an unlikely trump lead.
Greg Saunders's bidding problem: A8 J98652 9 AKQ2
Since a slam makes in clubs (via the comment in the problem) I'll just bid it.
Heitor Paoli Barbosa's bidding problem: KJxxxx QJT9x J x
Great hand to be playing precision. Chances for slam are remote, so jumping to 4 will both shut out the ops since they won't know our hand, and avoid giving them info on what to do, while not risking us missing a slam very often.
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: --- QJxxxx QJxx 98x
Did anyone call for me here? No? I didn't think so.
Yusuf Sohtorik's bidding problem: A JT965 6 AQJ875
1 was silly and now we can never show our hand
