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."

Another huge finish for 15-year old Finn Kolesnik
Peg Kaplan dubbed him "Rock Star." Deserved. The most amazing part is that he has been playing for only two years. I had always thought that bridge, unlike chess, didn't have young prodigies because it required experience. Finn is proving me wrong.
Anyone for going back to the old Fall schedule or moving the Reisinger to the first weekend of the tournament?
It represents yet another example of the ACBL's basic marketing strategy, "Everybody wins." Give them colored masterpoints, even add more and more colors (I hear next year they are introducing cranberry points) and they keep coming back. That said, I like the format of a 2 day swiss playing ...
WEINSTEIN Wins BAM
Congrats. We played against Bob and Peter in the second round this evening. This was Bob Hamman. (Boards 9 and 10 of the NABC BAM second final if you are following in your hymnal.) On 9, Peter made the clear percentage play in a restricted choice situation in the club ...
Some Deals Are Just too Tough
You will never convince my partner you don't have a fifth heart (or more). Hope Kxx opposite QTxx at the three level plays well for you. Marty, you can borrow my couch.
Some Deals Are Just too Tough
I confess I would make a 3C mixed raise and play 3D. Bidding is not a perfect science.
Never a Senior
Can you imagine that prior to the start of a session all the North-South pairs yell "We are" and the East-West pairs respond "The ACBL."
X In Competitive Auction
The problem is that I bet this was not a bid made by an expert player in a real bridge game. I have trouble imagining what the 3C bidder has that he didn't bid last round.
Upside upside down
Our teammate at the other table thought it may be necessary to dislodge the DK before a diamond could get pitched on the HQ. Give declarer 6=2=3=2 for example. He cashed DA and could no longer give partner the 2 heart ruffs needed to set the contract ...
Upside upside down
Sorry. Fixed.
Dodge a Bullet
Kit, funny you should post this hand today. In the Soloway tonight we had the equivalent auction: 1D-(1N)-DBL-(2H alerted as transfer - certainly there are better runnouts than 'system on.' Comment.) Opener passed and the 1N bidder took the transfer. I am curious as to thoughts as to ...
