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.

Matchpoint Play in 4 hearts
Q because the 2 made me think East is likely 5-3-2-3.
Michael Rosenberg's bidding problem: 9 8 AK52 KJ97542

"I also expect partner to have a double stopper in the unbid suit, in this case diamonds." Whoa ....... you are drawing the wrong inference! The tell of this auction (that 'gives' an 'inference') is that NV opponents are not raising or rebidding s. So pard has probably got 4 s ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
The plausible explanation is ... Avarelli was hurried and didn't bother to sort his cards. After a quick glance, he quickly Passed thinking the AQ of s were the AQ of s. Apparent lunacy became historical brilliancy.
World Class Lines of Play
I was fortunate enough to watch and saw the pitfalls of this hand. It was a fine line you took to succeed. Was hoping for your team to advance ...
Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: A6 75 KJ4 AQJ964
C'mon man ....... this hand is a near perfect Yarington notrump. OK then! You are South and the auction proceeds ... 1NT 2 2 3 5 Is 5 fit showing ?
Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: A6 75 KJ4 AQJ964
Ok, I'll try 3. As a punt. In this auction (= context) it means ... "Pard, I have a hand unsuitable for 3NT with no other clear call".
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 ...
