about me



Fate dealt Ralph F. Lind a very solid bridge game, but little time for playing.


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 good player willing to learn it. 


If you have a question, PM him.


In 2017, he moved to the Bay State to be close to his family.


Retired, he has time for bridge.

ATB - duplication
Back in "the day" (mid-80s) for a couple of years I played a relay system based on some notes from Dave Cliff. My partner's initiative, not mine. Flat 5332 patterns were not well handled. For several reasons. Primarily, side queen location in non-anchor suits was problematic because auction level ...
Harrison Luba's bidding problem: AQ83 2 KQT98764 ---
Presto... s vanished!
Robin Hillyard's bidding problem: K8753 K83 --- Q7642
"Double should get the first trick pointing in my direction" but the "price of double" is to make my King vulnerable to finesse by a singleton. Too high, Pass.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: Q42 KJ3 K765 Q32
CB In the 54 boards, how many times did you open 1 and what was your matchpoint score on those boards?
How do play 6NT from North?
Win the opening lead with the K. You realize East cannot guard 3 suits, so you cash 4 s discarding 2 and 6 from dummy. If the Q does not appear, try to run s playing to the Q and Ace If the s run, cash them discarding the 8 ...
Jim Rasmussen's bidding problem: Q4 KT97 AJT3 A82
Looks like West is heavy snapdragon with East light and distributional. North might have tried 3 instead of doubling 3.
Joshua Donn's bidding problem: Q9x Axx Axx KQJx
South bidding 3 at his second turn is premature. And bidding 3 "not necessarily to make" means you are willing to "let them off the hook" when the cards lie poorly for them and they are destined to go for 10 IMPs or so. If their side suit ...
Early Decision
If South held Q9542 A10 AQ98 K4 -- or -- Q9542 A10x AQ98 4 would he have bid 4 instead of 4 ?
What is the Best line in 6NT?
Win the opening lead with the K. Cash the top 3 clubs. Assume East shows out on the 3rd club discarding a . So West has 8 vacant spaces and East has 9 vacant spaces. The relative likelihood of the Ace being "right" (= with East) is .53 (9/17) and ...
What is you plan?
Your declarer play is fine. I formed that opinion 10 years ago when your pard was late arriving at the Penticton Regional and I filled in and played the first 6 or 7 hands of the pairs for you. The way I remember, you play 4 suit transfers over opener ...
