about me

I am a lawyer in Denver, Colorado, married to Anne Brenner, my partner in life as well as bridge. I am on the USBF board, the District 17 disciplinary chair, coach of the USA under 26-2 junior team, and write a monthly column, "Sleeping on the Couch". A collection of my columns is now available in book form from Master Point Press. My 17,000 master points aren't worth a damn without a national championship and my dream is that some day I win the "Italian-American, pony-tailed tax specialist playing with the Francophile, retired pathologist four session senior mixed BAM."

Rafael Sacramento's bidding problem: Q92 QJ652 AK KT7
No strong opinion on 1H or 1N.
"Does anything matter in this game?" On this, both April Fools Day and approaching the crest in the coronavirus, my answer is "yes". In general it is the satisfaction of having done something right. It is the intrinsic difficulty of the game. We are human and can never get it ...
Matchgame: Double Trouble #2
I agree that there are many distributions possible but I have trouble getting to a dozen. However, among those distributions, I don't see why 5431 (intending to include 5=4=3=1 and 5=3=4=1) isn't the most likely.
Matchgame: Double Trouble #2
As I suggested above, after an auction like 1S-(P)-1N-(2C), we play double as takeout and would expect opener is most likely 543=1. But after 1D-(P)-1N-(2X), neither major is in play for our side. Our terminology is different (we refer to 1D-1N as a ...

Questions about "Vugraph" matches
Agree with do what is easiest but I would prefer seeing the play of the best players available. Match or practice makes little difference.
