about me



Fate dealt Ralph F. Lind a strong bridge game.


Chance left him little time for playing.


He wrote a 5542 bidding System (called Aurora) that swings quite well against 2/1.  It is documented and fun to play.  He is looking for a New England expert to play it with. 


If you have a question in mind, PM him.


Retired, he lives in the Bay State not far from Nashua.



United States of America

Another Fine Mess
Win the J, Ace, and K. Cross ruff until they ruff in with Ace, J or 7. ruff the 9 with the 5. lead 3 up to the Ace, then ruff the 5 with the 6. If all that worked, we have 6 tricks. And we still have 5 of ...
Common Game Friday 17 May
I'd be curious as to how people think West should bid their hand. 4NT was fine as long as it's forcing.
Do you add 1Hcp for all 4 Aces?
Any balanced hand with 19 HCP containing 4 Aces should open 2NT when playing for stakes.
Jim Rasmussen's bidding problem: AJ AK32 AKQJ643 ---
"Why would partner bid this way?" No entry for a Notrump Slam. He/she expects you to correct to 6NT or 7NT with a stiff club.
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: JT952 A2 A92 JT3
Current Poll Results say 70% allow the opponents to play in 2. When 3 doubled and off 1 gets 1 matchpoint against every pair that allows the opponents to play that partial.
Sarik Goyal's bidding problem: QJ96 K84 QJ63 KJ
To find the lead, of course.
Trick 1 Pause, Platinum Pairs
S.D. - The point is that 'thinking' causes BIT. The point is that younger and less experienced players need to think longer and in more situations. Directors have been given the power to change the score after BIT. The consequence is that stronger more experienced players 'have recourse' when weaker ...
Trick 1 Pause, Platinum Pairs
C.Y. - Yes, thinking was once a larger part of the game (in the time of tolerance and before arbitrary BIT penalty assessment). Today, 'director BIT calling' has become conventional, for to get a second bite at the apple.
Craig Zastera's bidding problem: AT95 8 AQJ987 86
"You might comment if you disagree with South's PASS over East's 4" South 100% blame (for guessing wrong over North's Double).
Dan Zagorin's bidding problem: QJ Kxx AQx QJTxx
