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."

Opener's Rebid After a Negative Double
We like to play in a known 7+ card fit. At the two level our double shows 4+ in the other major, hence we would bid 2oM absent extreme suit quality disparity.
BW 2/1: Serious 3NT
There two questions in one here, the intellectual and the practical. "Serious" or "nonserious" is a question experts can debate. But if the agreements are intended as "keep it simple for intermediate players", that intellectual question should take a back seat to the practical. Intermediates don't need serious/nonserious ...
ATB missed grand
West. We play one under (6H in this case) is last train, confirming all the keycards. East would have an easy 7 bid. Without it (or equivalent), East was not invited to bid on.
ACBL District 11 Director Report from BOD Member
Kudos to A.J. for a quality report. I agree that a repository for such reports would be valuable. If the ACBL is unable or unwilling, perhaps Bridgewinners could.
Splitting in 2nd Seat: High or Low?
We play about 5000 deals a year (15 weeks, 2+ sessions a day, 25 deals a session. Yes some play three+ times that but I am just trying to put it in context.) We play "split high", I keep track of our results, and I do not think there was ...
Defining Bridge
I always knew Chris was a visionary.
Link to - Who Owns a Nonprofit
If this is in reference to ACBL membership, we "members" are really just customers who purchase services. We do not "own" the ACBL. (If we did, the organization would not qualify as tax-exempt under 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code.) The ACBL was incorporated under the laws of ...
BW 2/1: 100% GF?
Not clear to me whether this was intended to include 1D-2C. Perhaps wrongly, I assumed it did not when I responded.
Board 7 from the 02/07/2018 Common Game
Thanks Chip. I get the auction (I wondered about 4H as kickback), but if South was bidding the grand anyway, isn't 6S a "practice bid" or is their some subtlety that escapes me? (For example, North breaks tempo over 6S before bidding 6N and South bids 7. As a ...
Board 7 from the 02/07/2018 Common Game
Can someone explain the auction? It looks like south confirmed all the keycards with 5H (?), then made a grand try, then accepted it himself. I am sure there is a better answer.
