about me



Fate dealt Ralph F. Lind a strong bridge game, but little time to play.  Till 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.

Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: QT92 A7 AKQT93 K
No point in bidding on (= they have the Ace)
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: AK32 32 AK5432 2
5432 means xxxx (= "Fleet speak")
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: AK76 --- Q9852 AKQ8
Is it easier to find a minor suit slam by responding 2 or 3 ?
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: AK76 --- Q9852 AKQ8
That's the point of 2. To avoid the muss (of 3). The problem is that the 3 response is often perforce "a punt". And too dangerous to try on this hand unless you are playing 3D (over 3) as per Gary Hann's false preference ...
Suit Quality for 1C-1S-4C (forcing Spade raise)
I favor either solid suit or excellent suit. If you like excellent suit, then consider : no void, second round side suit control, and RKC.dsa
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: AK76 --- Q9852 AKQ8
Opting for 2, a one-step call...
Aggressive or Hyperaggressive?
If FV at matchpoints and you need to perform surgery, this is the spot.
Robin Hillyard's bidding problem: Q92 AJ 54 AQJT73
Aha... so you intended that 2 call as a semaphoric placeholder!
Sarik Goyal's bidding problem: AQ 32 83 AQT8742
If you have no agreement about advancer's rebid in this situation, then try and make a bid that offers the best chance of finding a safe home for the contract.
