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: 2 T987 T9 KJT542
I voted for 3C because it was defined as weak but would not be my system choice. The problem in precision is the need to disambiguate your minor suit lengths. We went round and round on whether 2C should be NF and 2S as clubs, or 2C as forcing and ...
Senior Quarterfinal Hand
No. CA, overtake second spade, cash third spade pitching diamond, ruff fourth spade, DAK, ruff diamond, C to T.
Senior Quarterfinal Hand
Some hands stick with you. Several thoughts. 1. I opened 2C precision and Sontag overcalled 2H. Given he could have at most 10 high card points, led a low spade from 3/5, and is a "solid citizen", if he had 4 diamonds it would mean he overcalled on a ...
Upsets Mark USA1 Senior Quarterfinal
Give enough monkeys typewriters... Ask Annie how she liked playing 3N with a spade stopper of Qx opposite void with 6C frozen? Yes, I lost my mind. I even tabled dummy saying, "3NT down with 6C making." (First board from the Friday afternoon session.) But, seriously, check out Bob Bitterman ...
Rest days
When I was younger, I was a serious recreational endurance athlete (My last race was at the age of 51 when I ran the Grizz 50 in 8:32.) My coach was Jon Sinclair, America's best 5000 meter runner 35 years ago. Jon was a disciple of Arthur Lydiard ...
It would be inadequate for public disclosure, but for partnership memory purposes, assigning names to treatments and sequences may have merit. For example, a bid showing a symmetric pattern could be called Bob. A bid showing shortness could be called Napoleon. And a bid showing a completely worthless piece of ...
Bridge Expedition to the End of the Universe
Ok. Call me an idiot, but I have been an amateur musician most of my life and fairly well versed in jazz chording. I am not familiar with "down three" as a jazz chord. My best guess is a flatted third?
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: QJ9654 KJ7 KJ5 2
Trust the law. It is better than you are.
-700 the hard way, ATB
6N. All the other bids required partnership agreement. But as far as south knew, they could be cashing the first 8 diamonds, partner having a stiff.
USA1 Semifinals, Day 2
The board that made me lose sleep was 22 from the final set. At that point, the match was basically a tie. Meckstroth was in 3N with nine top tricks after a spade lead. He could cash, or take a club finesse. If the finesse loses he goes down. If ...
