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.

Sarik Goyal's bidding problem: AQ 32 83 AQT8742

Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
"“Cheating in bridge is analogous to calculated pre-planned murder in life”. I am sorry but you and Chris are too closely connected to this issue to think rationally." False analogy, no dead bodies here. This be about stealing, not killing. Lots of petty theft, picking pockets for a fistful of ...
Questions for theorists
Not a theorist, but I think (A) and (B) are OBAR situations where you can gain advantage by swinging against the field. One way is to use transfers. Rubens advances. Another way is to play the Cue-bid double. Also Rubens' idea.
How do you play 4H?
Win the K in hand. Table the A. Because .......
1NT defence
Partner got off to the J, a good lead. The probability of running 5 tricks has gone up because of it. The defensive situation should be recognizable as archetypal, so it appears best to attempt to cash 5 spades. The danger of a shift is that it may lose ...
1NT defence
DL, anything but a continuation is too dangerous.
Matchpoint Play in 4 hearts
Q because the 2 made me think East is likely 5-3-2-3.
