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 a question, PM him.


Retired, he lives in the Bay State south of Nashua.


United States of America

Jim Rasmussen's lead problem: AT987 QJ985 Q 94
(1X) 1Y (1NT) ? is a favorable auction for advancer's double to be responsive. East West need to get together here.
Improve my Guess
Improve my Guess Depends upon your judgment of what East and West are likely to have done. When you led the 2 and the 3 appeared..... "Which is more likely?.. that West played the "smooth 3" from K3 doubleton... or, that East "Passed a little heavy" instead of opening the ...
Improve my Guess
guess to duck.
Double of unusual 2NT
4 is no option. South's 2NT has the signature of a strong hand that was stymied by the 1 opening bid. Even 3 is dangerous (and vulnerable).
Best line for 6H
To make 6 one of the red Kings must be onside. It is a mistake to ruff the deuce early because if the K is onside fourth, that ruff will establish him. So, start by finessing the Q with the intention of establishing s. If the Q holds, you ...
