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."

Not clear what the security precautions are for the pairs event?

Michael, I don't doubt you but Annie isn't changing. Perhaps unrelated but seems to be of the same philosophy, where do you come out on auctions like 1S-1N-3S-4C? I used to play that as natural and I was told, "No, that is wrong." So now I play them ...
For System Geeks Only
There are certainly hands where 6C is a better contract than 6H, I just don't think DB's was one of them. But my real issue is a bit different. How often is 6C going to be better than 6H? Are you going to be able to bid them ...
Jack Spear's lead problem: J2 Q2 A432 KJ432
If I lead the DA and it is wrong, I don't have to sleep on the couch.
For System Geeks Only
"6C is quite a bit better than 6H." I am curious. Assume a spade lead against both contracts. The following is a crude approximation but I believe close enough to test whether 6C is quite a bit better. 6H makes when hearts are 3-3 or 1/3 of the 4-2 ...
For System Geeks Only
They are undefined. In many other contexts we play "matching pairs" where 4C would be a slam try in the lower suit (in this case clubs) and 4D would be coming in the higher suit, hearts. But when partner is known to have shortness, it seems odd not to ask ...

D.B. xx, AKQT7th, Kx, xx. Responder has just shown a game forcing hand. 3H says, "hearts are trump." Certainly not a 1C opener. If responder doesn't bid 3S, my auction is easily over. If he does, I bid 4D and the rest is up to him. Is Ed ...
Rafael Sacramento's bidding problem: KQ432 QT9 T52 Q5
Kyle Rockoff. I love Kyle for his enthusiasm. I have been kidding him for two years now about posting hands where the answer is unanimous or close to (there is always some whacko bidding 6D.) I think that 2H should be close to unanimous. Kyle was one of mine but ...
Rafael Sacramento's bidding problem: KQ432 QT9 T52 Q5
Did Kyle make you post this? I don't get it. My hearts are better than they could be but my hand is still a 5332 dog.
