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, managing bridge websites and coaching.  In "real life," Peg sells real estate in Minnesota, and loves her pet birdies.

The ACBL: a Byword for Incompetence?
Robert, thank you for this second post. I do agree with those who state that many volunteers work so hard to make a tournament nice. Sometimes, though, through no fault of their own, something goes awry. I would think it appropriate for you to look into what DID happen. And ...
The Next Step
I sure hope Les DOES keep on posting - irrespective of other comments! Not only is he a fine player - he is one of the people who truly makes bridge fun and enjoyable. Plus - I had one of my very exciting Swiss runs once with Les & Company many years ago. The ...
The Next Step
Marshall, if you go back and read some of the other comments, people did refer to "leading throughout a hand", etc. So - not disagreeing with you in principle ... but as a practical matter not sure exactly how this would be handled. Agree very strongly that everyone SHOULD strive to have ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 75 QJ65 Q6 QJ653
Additionally, IMHO I just don't see much of anything in my hand that is going to be a plus on defense....
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: --- AQ4 KQJT753 A94
He could. But he didn't preempt in front of us, so if this is his holding it's not too wonderful. Brad, I'm not saying that there aren't some hands where either doubling, either for partner to sit or to get to a hand that does actually ...
The Next Step
Perhaps I misunderstood, Marshall. I agree with you on the latter (that 3 chair should never play rapidly when it's his turn). But are we all supposed to sit down and say "We never play a card on defense, either at trick one or throughout the hand, without having ...
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: --- AQ4 KQJT753 A94
I, on the other hand, cannot see a call other than pass. Partner did pass 1. He heard us open, then bid again at the 3 level opposite a partner who couldn't respond at the one level. Two cover cards are NOT in the cards. And although he ...
A 1987 Hamman-centric NYT article on bridge...
A superb article, Avon; many thanks for posting it. This, perhaps, was my favorite quote: "He (Hamman) paused. ''The most important thing is that it's not how good you are at your best, but how bad you are at your worst. Everyone is going to make horrendous errors from ...
The Next Step
Ray, I am "liking" your comment in the hope that it's in jest ;)
Club UI problem
Again - I'd check with a director. But it's my understanding that once the player who was supposed to pause did not, that then the auction is compromised UNLESS the next player to speak takes the time that his RHO should have taken. His pause is not "a wrong ...
