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". A collection of my columns is now available in book form from Master Point Press. My 19,000 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."

Two Out of Three Ain't Bad
If you don't play with nice partners you end up sleeping on the couch. But even without the CJ AQx, Kxxx, --, Qxxxxx opp Kx, AT9x, AKxx, Axx (and opener owes me a point), 6C is all 2-2's (40) plus 5/8ths of 3-1's (stiff K or Kxx ...
Two Out of Three Ain't Bad
"How would you bid this hand?" 2N 19-20 - 3C 3H-3S big raise 4C-5D exclusion 5N 2 without 6C natural and not an SAB after responder denies the trump Q, "games before slam" and "smalls before grands". Damn. We missed 6N.
cue bids
I am guessing Joe plays 2N as the 4 trump raise. We agree.
Mentality of Cheating
Michael, of course you are right that the sequel was "The Color of Money." "Fat man, you shoot a great game of pool" is such a wonderful line.
USBF To Hold U31 Trials for 2020 WYBTC
I am sorry but the event was announced too late for our budget and we don't really have the money, and it was also too late to be made a part of the Atlanta junior trials. This year's treatment is not intended to be precedent and we will ...
Mentality of Cheating
Dumping a match because you bet against yourself was a subject in Easy Money, the sequel to The Hustler (one of the great all-time moves (The Hustler that is.) It isn't cheating to win the billiard game, it is cheating to win a bet. The idea of dumping to ...
Mentality of Cheating
Yes, the sticky bat exists but I would hardly call it a scandal. But sure, I will try again. Billiards. There is a billiard term, "Cheating the pocket" but it refers to not aiming at the middle of the pocket to avoid a scratch or obtain better position. There has ...
Ethics, gamesmanship and the law
Ray, that was very good.
Michael Kopera's lead problem: AKJ8 T8 T976 AJ8
Welcome to polling ethics 101. I checked D6 (suit preference) and did not consider the possibilty that partner had a club ruff. I now believe CA is indicated. What are the BW standards for changing my choice? Am I entitled to change my mind? And what does it mean? Does ...
Mentality of Cheating
Randy, educate me as to cheating in competitive table tennis. (In a former life I played intercollegiate table tennis and won a state flighted championship (second flight.)) The postings I found on the internet after searching "cheating table tennis" dealt with rule violations, for example, a serve where the bat ...
