about me


Fate dealt Ralph F. Lind a strong bridge game.  Chance left him little time to play.


He wrote a bidding System (called Aurora) that swings to advantage against 2/1.  It is documented.  He is looking for a New England expert with the inclination and ability to play it. 


If you have interest, PM him.


Retired.  He lives in the Bay State.


United States of America

Super Acceptance after 1NT Opening and Minor Suit Transfer
I suspect if partner bails to 4m you are not going to be a favorite to go plus. The price (King) of being sure the minor runs is too high. Consider jumping to 3NT with Axxx (no King or Queen). What is the chance the minor suit runs? Partner is ...
How you decide and why?
I play for the drop. 1. A or a return forces the hand into an end position where to finesse against the J and to be wrong is to lose the rest of the tricks. Most every opponent here will try and drop the J. 2. With 8 ...
Interesting Suit Combination
AT3 Q975 "What is the best play in a vacuum?" lead the 9 to the A103 +++ 1. Which hand do you lead from? This can be determined by considering the case where the opponent's cards divide 3-3.  Because other splits are "paired" and advantage cancels out. Leading to the ...
Best line?
I like your start. You ruffed the 2nd to discover how the suit divides. When the split is 4-3 (3:2 odds), cash the KQ and discard the Q4. Then ruff the deuce back to hand, draw trumps, concede a and claim.
Smart Dude
I agree with Steve, Law first. Because the Law has for many been their stepping stone into the more important affairs of men.
Sean McNally's bidding problem: J KQJ Q4 AQJ6543
always run, never walk
Michael Barel's bidding problem: 4 AKQJ863 T8 AK8
5 was a slam try, 5 showed "interest with a card" 5 "this may be the last best spot, pard". It's not negative, but "it passes the buck" to pard to decide whether or not to try the small slam. Pard realizes the round suits ...
Michael Barel's bidding problem: 4 AKQJ863 T8 AK8
A 5 Cue bid allows pard to take another look at his/her hand and continue the auction according to reevaluation. 1 P 2 P 4 P 5 P 5 P 5 P 5NT P 6 P 6NT All Pass
Can East and West bid better?
maybe a convention would help
Craig Zastera's bidding problem: J3 J987643 AT7 K
It would be interesting to see a followup to this problem where the auction goes 2 P 2NT P ?? and the choices are the Ogust responses
