about me

Ralph F. Lind did not spend his time playing cards. Nevertheless, he wrote a 5 card major bidding system (called Aurora) to defeat 2/1. And is looking for an accomplished player from New England to give it a try. Retired, he now lives in Massachusetts.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
John McAllister's bidding problem: QTxx xx --- KJTxxxx
5 IMPs if wrong, 11 IMPs if right. Surprised! at all the Passes, they must not think this is a low risk Lightner situation.
Hobson's Choice
Great idea ! but to be saved for a special occasion when you want to get rid of pard. The hope is the low from hand loses to the stiff Queen, then the opponents cash 5 hearts and the Ace. The benefit occurs if pard becomes livid with ...
ATB - Another Missed Game
I also would bid 1NT as East, the cards being deceptively strong.
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: 86 QJ86 J6 AKQ84
Steve - ATB 50-50 ... That 3 splinter is the real problem. From a system point of view you probably have some gadget to tell the number of s pard has for his/her raise and this is the hand to use it on. This being the case, that 3 ...
Martian Standard Defense to Big Club
Bill, The redeeming factors for using Martian Standard as a defensive schema against a strong 1C opening are that pard can remember it and also remember whatever similar system you use over 1NT openings and that it works well when you have a big fit or when it is your ...
Martian Standard Defense to Big Club
Bill, you've suggested that in the present when asked what they consider the best defense to a strong club, Meckwell deliberately answers topsy-turvy so that all who follow "that advice" will advantage them at the table. My bet is that you are ...
ATB for missing this slam
The South hand is a 3 preempt when your partnership is using the Rule of 2/3/4. North has 5 cover cards including the K. This makes Richard's 3-6 a better auction than one which asks for keycards.

Adam Grossack's bidding problem: 653 KJ875 5 T954
1. This is one reason why you play Drury ( for a lead ).
Adam Parrish's bidding problem: J987 AQT62 A2 A3
Optimistic, over 3 I would bid 3 because +140 beats +130. Pessimistic, over 3 I would bid 3 because pard is 3=3=4(+)=x. Though this created a dicey situation, it's justified in order not to lose to the 3 overcallers.
