about me

Peg Kaplan is the proverbial "jack of all trades; master of none". When not competing at the bridge table, this Grand Life Master promotes the game she loves, with writing, photography and managing several bridge blogs.  In "real life," Peg sells real estate in Minnesota, and loves her pet birdies.

Research on Sexism and Bridge: Have your Say
Actually, false reporting by you, Cornelia. See this statement in the article: "Studies reporting raw amygdala volume show that the structure is indeed about 10 percent larger in male brains. However, this difference is comparable to males' larger body size, including the 11-12 percent larger volume of males' brains overall ...
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
I know when I turn in a slip, it will say + "x" number - or "tie" or 0-0. And then (if possible) get confirmation from the other team that it is accurate. Usually only the team that wins turns in the score (or, if a tie, one team or the other ...
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
Yu, I am not at all calling for any kind of censorship (above and beyond what BW believes appropriate). Just sharing my view that it is very harmful to base conclusions on speculation. I personally fault the ACBL overall for not coming out far earlier with an explanation of what ...
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
Yu, totally agree that someone should have discussed this with the director - either at the table or when the result was turned in. In my mind, the purpose of this is not to claim that everything that happened happened just as it ought to have done. The purpose is to ...
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
Mike - you and I have both been at tournaments where two directors give different rulings about exactly the same scenario. So - not surprising to me that directors are not always aware of all the rules! And - please don't think I am being critical of all directors; I am not ...
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
Tom - "Fact not Fiction" is not the title. It is Fact INSTEAD OF Fiction!!! I saw literally more than a thousand comments on this topic - many of which were filled with statements that I knew to be false. And - I knew that the people making the statements could not know ...
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
Yes, Yu - a director should be told right away. I realize that Marc's description of what happened is very long - but - there is this sentence in it: "For his part, Lair saw that a director was standing near the table before he arrived and assumed the director already knew ...
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
Jeff, I spoke with one friend immediately after this incident who has been playing bridge for over 45 years, is in the top 100 - and also did not know that a match wouldn't be scored as a tie if you sat the same direction. Only a guess, but my ...
Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
"Whether this article is candid or not I have no idea." Mike - what do you mean by this statement?
Research on Sexism and Bridge: Have your Say
David, appreciate your additional comments. Knowing close to nothing about chess, they were illuminating. A bit scary sometimes how off researchers can be in their methods and knowledge base. Always appreciate other viewpoints from people more knowledgeable than I.
