about me

In 2017, Ralph F. Lind moved to the Bay State to be close to his family.  He has a very solid bridge game.  His 5 card major system swings particularly well  against 2/1.  It's fun to play, fully documented, and has produced excellent results.  At long last retired, he has time to play some bridge.


His System is called Aurora.  There is a learning curve so he needs a partner who likes playing on BBO.  Best partner has plenty of master points so System can be tested against tier 1 competition.

Joshua Donn's bidding problem: Q9x Axx Axx KQJx
Pass wouldn't occur to me. Close between double and double.
Follower/Following List
Followers list (my bug only?). Other people cannot follow my profile. I got a notice in Recent Activity that "Donald Lurie is now following you". But his name was never added to the followers list of my profile. This event happened twice this month. It is as if he tried ...
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: AJT43 J953 AT T8
Responsive 6+ HCP x-5-5-x The East hand couldn't be much better for my System. The 3 jump is an invite. My bid is 3, not 4.
Carding Question
Ah! but the 3 really was suit preference. So pard has led from KJ6x and wants an immediate club return. And the 5 really is current count, from an original Q65(3) holding.
Dick Wilson's bidding problem: AKQ97542 KT654 --- ---
2♣= 55+M then if pard jumps to 4, 5NT GSF
I apologize for this question
I rarely play. But I do maintain my system (to keep my interest in bridge alive). Last winter I changed the response structure for 1M-2C to be "either clubs or balanced" (promising 2+). Exactly as in Jack Spear's alert comment. 1M-2♣="either clubs or balanced" (promising 2+) is an ...
Jim Rasmussen's bidding problem: KQJ832 Q5 43 K64
4 is unlikely to be the average final contract for the field (e.g. - 2 - (3) - 4 - (5) ...) Pard cannot know we have extra trump length. Pard cannot know we have extra trump quality. Gotta bid.
What would you have done?
Ovunc, It's probable the opponents are playing exactly as Kieran explained. The bottom of their Cue bid range begins with hands that would never raise to the 3 level. Knowing this, East can safely retreat to 2 (and not worry about missing game) because they have the agreement ...
What would you have done?
Kit, What would you bid (instead of 2) with the East hand?
What would you have done?
"Would you just be OK with this and forget about the hand?" I would not soon forget this hand ! I would be angry at myself for not rising with the J, leading out the Ace and continuing with the 10 (suit preference indicating pard must duck a heart led from ...
