about me

[

 

Fate dealt Ralph F. Lind a strong bridge game, but little time to play.  Till now.

 

He wrote a 5 card major bidding System (called Aurora) that swings well versus 2/1.  It is fully documented, fun to play, and has won some open events on both the Sectional and Regional level.  He is looking for a New England expert (who wants better results) to learn it with. 

 

If you have a question, PM him.

 

In 2017, he moved to the Bay State to be close to his family.

 

Retired, he has the time to play bridge.

Craig Zastera's bidding problem: AT95 8 AQJ987 86
"You might comment if you disagree with South's PASS over East's 4" South 100% blame (for guessing wrong over North's Double).
Dan Zagorin's bidding problem: QJ Kxx AQx QJTxx
time to man up
Was this a fielded psyche and is the psychic bidder allowed to coach his client when the director is called?
"My guess is that East simply passes when partner can declare a hand." Agree.
Drury bidding poll followup
I think 3 is "reasonable" as long as it "suggests" another strain.
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: AK76 --- Q9852 AKQ8
continued auction 1 P 1NT P 2 P 2 P 3 P ?? after a 2 preference, prospects of responder's (example) hand now look better
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: AK76 --- Q9852 AKQ8
Nope. At matchpoint pairs, don't worry about "buwuddif ... a worst case scenario happens". Instead, do worry about making a call that "steers" an auction towards a lower probability of success. +++ On this hand you know there should be at least a 5-4 fit, or a 4-4 fit ...
IMP Pairs?
IMP pairs as represented by an orange. MP pairs that orange, the "juice" squeezed out of it.
IMP Pairs?
So... if you have a bridge mind but lack a partner you can drive down to the local club and pick up a stranger for the IMP pairs. And if it happens he/she can follow suit, you can be a bridge winner occasionally.
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: QT92 A7 AKQT93 K
No point in bidding on (= they have the Ace)
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: AK32 32 AK5432 2
5432 means xxxx (= "Fleet speak")
