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 21 junior team, and write a monthly column, "Sleeping on the Couch." My 15,000 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 board a m

The ruling and appeal that weren't
On a club lead in 6S, you can establish the HT, pitch a club, ruff a club, but you can't get off dummy. East can give West a diamond ruff.
In the Well: Jeff Meckstroth
Jeff, thanks for agreeing to play on BBO Vugraph with the USBF Junior Training Team, Monday, April 10, at 7pm Eastern time. Kibitzers are welcome. Larry Cohen and George Jacobs will be doing the commentary. The kids are grateful to all the top players who are willing to donate their ...
What's This Double?
It looks ridiculous in print but after a voluntary bid and raise sequence we sell penalty doubles below the game level.
Bid after partner's break in tempo

Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: Ax KT73 KQJx KJx
Partner's pass of a redouble above the one level is penalty. If that is not your agreement, you should be required to put a red sticker on your convention card that says, "Please violate me." (That isn't really what the sticker should say but I cleaned it up ...
Happy Endings
You need the spade finesse for 12 tricks. It is probably percentage to play for spades to be no worse than 4-2. So, cash out 2 spades while ruffing diamonds then play CA-CQ. On this lie, Bob's your uncle.
Happy Endings
6C seems like too much but the play is also not without interest. On a diamond lead, playing to strip diamonds before playing CA C, leads to a nice end position. But Oren, with great teammates, why were you playing in the side game? Keep the postings coming. Your writing ...
Best Hand Held After Partner Opens
I am not saying it works but Bridge World once posed the problem of creating the auction most likely to get doubled. Perhaps a forcing heart raise might get a "matchpoint double" from JT98.
Zeke Jabbour Winner of ACBL Blackwood Award
I second that. The Zekester is not only a great player and a great person, but the quintessential babe magnet. I once witnessed a wife give her a husband her camera so that he could take a picture of Zeke giving her a kiss.
