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." My 16,000 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."

Assume It Is Off
Kit, you stated that 3C shows your minor suit distribution "exactly."I inferred 3=1=4=5. But I misuderstood. Hence my comments. But there is a difference between 3145 and 2245. How do you untrack them?
Best bridge advice ever:
And when they added up to 1.00, we mailed them to the ACBL.
Precision "Pass and Pull" (part three)
If "not thought through" implies I haven't spent sleepless nights about this, that would be inaccurate. Above 4N, you dont have enough room to do everything, something has to be compromised. You absolutely need a takeout double and a penalty pass (or vice versa), which leaves two options for ...
Best bridge advice ever:
"There is a duplicate game at the local YMCA." Princeton NJ, 1975. We won our first fraction of a masterpoint.
Assume It Is Off
But then what is your rebid after 2S? 3S is 4=5 and 3N is 5=4?
Assume It Is Off
Not sure I understand your continuation after 2S. With xx, xx, KQxx, AKxxx (2=2-5/4) are you forced to rebid 1N after 1H? That looks terribly wrong-sided and confirms you own 2 diamonds. 2C would confirm 9 minor suit cards including four of each.
Finn Kolesnik's lead problem: AK6 963 QT53 973
Finn, you probably should say in your post whether A or K is the power lead (unblock or count.)
Daniel Sonner's bidding problem: Q74 3 KJT7 AKJ65
Put me down for 1D - 2C. You can sort out the length after 4th suit forcing if partner has game going values. Otherwise, you have shown where 9 of your cards are, a much better start than rebidding 2C showing 5 or 1N showing 3. And partner can rebid 2H ...
Finn Kolesnik's bidding problem: KJ2 87 KJ75 T865
Trust the law. Finn, tell your dad that I would pass at any form of the game. That should convince him to double.
Finn Kolesnik's bidding problem: KQJ5 KQ7532 2 73
This is why you play 2H as nonforcing. Finn, tell your dad I would bid 2H at any vulnerability and any form of the game, that should convince him that he was right when he passed.
