about me

<

 

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

Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: A6 75 KJ4 AQJ964

Nathan Finkle's bidding problem: AQJ3 A75 AT3 A65
A clear 2NT playing rubber bridge where your money is at stake, otherwise a clear 1.
Another Suit Combo
When partners also Save. Possible results NV are +100, +300, +500 IMPs translate to ( your columns, their rows ) +0, +5, +9 -5, +0, +5 -9, -5, +0 This is a situation where the risk of 5 to gain 4 (top row) should be avoided. That is, take the best chance ...
How would you bid this using your favourite system
Pass - 1 2 - 2 2 - 2NT 3 - 4 4 - 5 6
Stewart Rubenstein's bidding problem: A5 KQ96 QJT32 Q5
No need for minor suit flagging since auction GF. Therefore initial assumption is "shows cards and implies weakness in the other major".

Same call if playing CAPP/1Mx

Gone days. Listening at table - or not
Punt Bids!
A "punt" is a convenient but artificial rebid to keep an auction going in the direction that "the punter" wants. "Punts" are often used to span "holes". A "hole" in a system occurs when there is no natural call to describe your specific hand. Consider a 2/1 system. 1 ...
