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.

Craig Biddle's bidding problem: 9872 32 J2 AKJ92
This is why people preempt. If you were able to open 1 of course it would be trivial to reach 5, but that's not how it went. N has no bid other than 3 that makes sense, and S has a decent hand, but with no ...
David Goldfarb's bidding problem: 87654 J AT AKQ65
Very close between double and pass. I'd like 4 more if partner weren't a passed hand.
ATB - missed grand
I do not understand 5 as 1/4 keycards. This is not consistent with any version of Blackwood/Keycard I've ever seen. Just playing simple Keycard would have made this a no brainer. If 1430, 4N 5 5 6 7 If 0314, 4N 5 ...
Steven Allen's bidding problem: 84 AKT532 QJ653 ---
Well, one gambling bid deserves another I suppose.
Frank Lin's bidding problem: Q98432 432 432 2
4 would work great if we could put a piece of duck tape over partner's mouth to make sure he doesn't bid anymore. Unfortunately a fair amount of the time when partner has what we need to make 4 he's going to move to slam ...
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: QJ962 --- KJT94 T75
If 2NT is not natural, what is one suppose to bid with xx KQxxx AQx Qxx? I think you're getting confused with partner doesn't show strength and 4th seat interferes. 2 is almost GF anyway, so playing good/bad 2NT would serve very little purpose. As for ...
Eric Leong's bidding problem: AQJ5 AJ72 K976 A
I assume 4 is a splinter, and am bidding 4NT as keycard. Of course these are blind guesses since no system information was provided.
Nikolay Yaninski's bidding problem: Jx K765 76 AJ843
In these high level preemptive auction the most important thing is to reach a contract we can make. Partner is likely just taking a flyer and appears to have made a good decision. We don't want to punish him if he happened to guess right.
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: --- AKx KQJxx A9xxx
When I'm not vul, sounds about the same to me.
Tuesday Spingold matches on Vugraph
Because ACBL doesn't run the vugraph nor do they decide who is on, and they prefer to keep the tables in order to avoid any possible problems.
