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.

Sean McNally's bidding problem: J KQJ Q4 AQJ6543
"How does the Law help you in the play of 3♣ doubled when dummy hits with a 4=3=4=2 shape (17 total trumps) and no entry but sufficient defence to hold spades to 7 tricks, for example Q10xx xxx J10xx xx?" Only a singleton K helps. Probability 12 ...
Sean McNally's bidding problem: J KQJ Q4 AQJ6543
Trump estimate East 4 s West 4-5 s North 7 s South 1-3 s Estimated total trumps 16-19 THE LAW using the lowest guess of 16 total trumps... if 2 is making 8 tricks (-110) then 2 is also making 8 tricks (+90) and 3 will be ...
Sean McNally's bidding problem: J KQJ Q4 AQJ6543
R.F. - "how is anyone supposed to know how many total trumps there are here?" Use an estimated number, not a for sure number.
Penultimate segment
Since the 876 were bookended and the odds were 2:1 against the K10 being doubleton, Zia shoulda pushed the 5, a humble Lullaby card.
Sean McNally's bidding problem: J KQJ Q4 AQJ6543
Y.T. - What does the Law tell you to do?
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: A42 --- AQJ852 AJ95
The reason you bid 5NT pick-a-slam (over 4) is to find out if partner likes his s well enough to suggest playing in 6. If that is the case, you are going to take a shot at a big cross-IMP swing and bid 7. You did it ...
Harrison Luba's bidding problem: --- KQJx K97xx AJT6
L.H. - I agree, its for a lead. Richard brings up conflicting indications. This calls into question West's Redouble. Is it "strength" or is it "just kidding"? The only clue is partner pulling to 4.
Craig Zastera's bidding problem: 4 AKQT76 T QT986
C.Za. - this hand reminds me of another fine Pacific N.W. player, the late Bob Hitchens. Without fail, Hitchens always jumped to Game in this situation. Today... I'll follow suit.
Harrison Luba's bidding problem: --- KQJx K97xx AJT6
L.H. - how did you read West's double of 3NT?
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: A42 --- AQJ852 AJ95
"Do you trust the opponents to have 9 ♠s between them and your partner to have shortness?" No! "do you just bash 7, or something else/ what?" No! ... this is the right question, Don. You want to make a bid which will lead you to guess if there's a ...
