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.

NABC Hotel Cancellation Policy
I personally like this policy. I know lots of people who were booking the whole tournament many months in advance just in case, then cancelling a couple weeks before.
Stan Schenker's bidding problem: AJT4 K83 AT654 8
If partner wants to insist on NT if i have a stopper, he'll bid 3 and I have to bid 3NT like it or not. As it is now, I would prefer to slow this down and bid 3, and also warn partner that NT might not ...
Bryan Howard's bidding problem: Q953 A AK752 A83
If I can't double this, then what?
Rafael Sacramento's bidding problem: AKQJ83 A9743 7 T
Pass and hope I make it.
Stan Schenker's bidding problem: 86 84 KQ964 KQT4
Hard to answer without knowing some important agreements, such as if 1NT was forcing and how many 2 promises.
Ian Grant's bidding problem: A732 KQ84 KT97 7
The problem with double is partner is going to expect a club fit, especially if they are competing in a 5-6 card suit at a high level. How are you going to feel after 1 X 2 3? And it'll only get worse the higher then ...
David Parsons's bidding problem: AJ6 J8 JT984 A32
We could have a slam in either minor if partner has a big hand with a fit. There is no reason why we need to grab the NT, so better to just describe our hand.
Bernie Greenspan's bidding problem: 74 AQJT63 54 AJT
If partner has what we need to make 3, he's bidding 4 (or 3NT). If he has what we need to make game, he's not passing 2.
David Parsons's bidding problem: J7 Q2 AKT762 J98
I have no issue taking the low road at matchpoints. Going down in aggressive games is punished severely.
Ron Lel's bidding problem: ATxx AKxx x AKxx
Tell me a hand I'd bid your way.
