about me


Fate dealt Ralph F. Lind a strong bridge game.  Chance left him little time to play.


He wrote a bidding System (called Aurora) that swings to advantage against 2/1.  It is documented.  He is looking for a New England expert with the inclination and ability to play it. 


If you have a question, PM him.


Retired, he lives in the Bay State south of Nashua.


United States of America

Craig Zastera's bidding problem: 8732 AK8 AQ982 J
Because the game is matchpoints
My Grandson
That is the worry.
My Grandson
"My grandson is 10 years old, with all the interests of a normal 10 year old." I would explain to him that he is in his formative years and what he does now determines who he will be as an adult. Tell him that bridge can become a very strong ...
Ralph F. Lind's bidding problem: --- AKQJ872 952 A97

Sarik Goyal's bidding problem: 75 743 AJ6 KJ976
Y.T. - 3 was a best bid for opponents. Danger is that it was a vulnerability stretch and at the other table the normal 2 call was made. Means sitting in 3 is choosing a losing swing. -12 IMPs (game/partscore) or -7 IMPs (partscores). That's ...
How do you play responder's second double?
from the " tolerance" camp ... 1M (2m) Dbl (3m) P P Dbl treat the second double as if this is a 'Snapdragon' situation
Is this a good matchpoint slam?
Odds are 4:1 against you. Suppose South held A65 KQJ95 AK54 4 Odds are 3:2 against you. Go figure.
What's the best matchpoint line? Common game board 24 from 6/25.
Hand theme is entry establishment, so... Win the Q and lay down the K. If that holds the trick and the Q does not appear, lay down the K. If that holds the trick, lay down the J. The idea is to brute force either 9 tricks in hand or ...
Takeout Doubler’s Cue Bid after Minor Suit Advance
P.M.Jr. - Done. I recall reading an article by Mike Lawrence about the range for a 1NT response by partner in this particular situation. Sometime in the last few years. Might've been in the ACBL Bulletin. As I remember, Mike advocated a ~ 4-10 1NT response. Perhaps someone else ...
