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 BAM."

Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: J94 KJ J9 AKJ732
4H natural, 4S KCB, 4N H replacement control bid.
Berlin Berlin
Our pass of 4H would simply say, "I can't help you if your control is the unprotected K." Then return to the trump suit would confirm that it was. RDB by the control bidder would show first round and anything else says, "We don't have two quick losers ...
BW MSC Rebid
I try to avoid reversing into a non-suit if I can avoid it.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: Q42 AQT865 A6 54
What a brutal (and so, by definition, good) question. Vul at imps. "We be bidden' game." Opener has denied 3 card support (unless a 2 bid hand). So,I bid 3S to look for a "dub".
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: K9 AQ74 QJT765 5
Your decision as to treatment has to be based on what you think is the relative frequency of holding a trap of RHO (and the payoff if you are right) versus holding a hand with values but no intelligent bid, e.g., AQx, xxxx, xxx, Axx (and the cost of ...
Weird UI/AI Question
Because opener can't "know" that third hand broke tempo, doesn't second hand have to make disclosure of their partnership agreement whenever fourth hand bids, regardless of whether a break occurred?
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: K9 AQ74 QJT765 5
Am I the only one who thinks that South's double should not be played as penalty? I put it in the same class of auctions with (1X)-P-(P)-DBL; (2X)-DBL. RHO opened, you passed, partner acted, RHO bid again, and you doubled. That a 22 year old ...
Canadian Championship 2017
I will take my friend Nick against the field. Winner gets a plate of poutine. Loser gets two plates of poutine.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: Ax KT73 KQJx KJx
Why would I not lead the Diamond King?
John Adams's bidding problem: Jx AJ KQ9xx A9xx
I can't imagining passing in any club game I might play in. Perhaps that is why I suck at matchpoints. I suspect you would get a different answer mix if you posed the question as vul at imps against strong opponents.
