here's something that i've started doing, maybe you all can tell me if this is good or not.

when i get to the bid screen, i look at my cards. i start with the number of aces i have for my bid. then i look at the other high cards. say i have 3 aces (spades, hearts, and diamonds) and a queen of spades, a king of hearts, and nothing extra in diamond or clubs. with that hand i will usually bid 4-5, depending on my mood.

is this a good way to bet?

Too ambiguous to tell acurately.

It depends how many of those suit you have. It also depends on how many tricks have already been bidded, more specifically, your partner's.
