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."

Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: KQxx Jx Axx KJ8x
Our rule is similar but stated differently. Pass is not for play through 1S. Pass of higher bids redoubled are too play. This is a big f**king accident if the partnership doesn't have an agreement here, yet most occasional partnerships don't discuss it. Matchpoint club game. 40 ...
Adam Grossack's bidding problem: 4 Q74 73 AJ76532
Let me guess. Zach doubled, it didn't work out, and you are now asking if Animal got out of his cage again.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: 82 AJ7642 Q32 98
Only a junior would bid with this hand. :)
How do you name this end-play?
He gets in to play a second spade when Grandma makes sushi for Thanksgiving.
How do you name this end-play?
If it is a girl, name her after your grandmother; if it is a boy, name him after your wife's grandfather. Actually, south gets squeezed without the count in three suits and then north gets squeezed in two, so call it a "32 skidoo." (Seriously, it is an unusual ...
Seeking a Counter Defense
Particularly when you are vulnerable and the opponents are not and in third chair all white, I believe you are seeing the top American players returning to methods which employ penalty doubles. For example, Meckwell don't always play Meckwell. Inflation runs rampant. 15-17 is now more like 14-16, a ...
Floyd McWilliams's bidding problem: AT84 K975 K AQ43
I voted but I have to admit that I would have opened a 15-17 notrump
Censored from the Championship Diary?
In Wyoming, 5D would say, " I know you have a diamond void. I have either the diamond K or QJ" with 6D a further ask and 6N showing the QJ, 7C to show the K. Isn't down one good bridge?
Active Ethics; System Pre-Alerts
I used to play a whacko, home-grown forcing pass system in a local club. We would pre-alert. The club owner had two rules. First, if an opponent chose not to play against it we would play standard (rarely would anyone say "no"). Second, if there was any problem (e.g ...
A pretty ending
I know no one else, who when he says, "the hand was misplayed", causes me to stop what I am doing and take the time to figure out what is correct. Had anyone else said that, there would be a hint of doubt that, maybe, it was played correctly. And ...
