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 17,000 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."

Max Schireson's bidding problem: AT J83 AKQ75 Q52
So, how would responder bid xxx, AKQxx, Jxx, Kx? I make what is the "bridge bid." If partner is confused, they will learn. If our game sucks, this is the right time to have a "lesson hand."
That's Universal
This lemming does not overcall 2H on Jxx, Q65432, KQ, Qx. Not all ten counts with 6 hearts will overcall. That said, if partner bid 4H on a 8 count with 6 hearts, I would not quibble.
Searching for an Amalya Kearse deal
I did not know she was still around. In 1978, she interviewed law students at the University of Chicago for her New York law firm. During a break in her interview schedule, I asked her if she would like to play a few hands. We set up in the lobby ...
Anonymous appeal opinion
I agree with the notion of transparency. Before the ACBL eliminated the national appeals committee, the appellants and their opponents would meet face to face with the committee so that everyone knew who everyone was and questions of bias and recusal could be addressed. I understand the reason for eliminating ...
That's Universal
I would expect 6+ hearts on this sequence. Maybe a ten count or compensating distribution.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: T5 A98762 --- AKQ76
4C. If I have it in the tool chest I should use it. Not perfect but close enough.
Cool Position After Creative Bidding
Daniel, nice deal. But for you and all the juniors who are going to be reading your post, I would like to comment on the bidding. Don't you ever dare come back to your teammates and this coach having bid 3C with the South hand. In my opinion, South ...
What do you expect from partner?
A minimum with 4 trump (law abiding). Probably not 4 trip.
2019 USBC Semifinals Set
My sincerest apologies to Kriegels everywhere. As I wrote this at 2:30pm Friday, my statement about Orem playing "extremely well" still stands.
2019 USBC Semifinals Set
Glad to see Debbie Rosenberg liked Michael Xu's comment. Given Michael Rosenberg's position as head of the US junior training program, I would expect many juniors and ex-juniors are cheering for him. Perhaps not Oren Kreigle who is playing extremely well and knocked off the 3 seed.
