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."

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.

Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: T5 A98762 --- AKQ76

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.
Should this be a forcing pass?
It appears we are in the minority. Just bidding game is not a force. Not accepting a limit+ does not create a force. Vulnerability does not affect our forcing pass rules. BUT if we make a limit or better raise and the opponents bid immediately above our game, we are ...
Where is the Nickell team in USBF playoffs?
Buy a copy of my book. The couch is on the inside cover.
He never sleeps on the couch
It was Coolbeans' partner, not a junior, who sat over the 1C opening.
Assign the Blame for Reaching This Poor Slam
Give some credit to East, but I do not believe a 4H rebid by South should be natural and nonforcing.
