about me

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.

Junior bridge and league growth: 5 year checkpoint
Jeff, kudos go to the U of MN professors who did such a fine job, especially Honors Program dean Matthew Bribitzer-Stull.
Junior bridge and league growth: 5 year checkpoint
Actually, a number of professors at the University of Minnesota had an honors, for credit class this last semester for bridge! Not only was it very well attended, but in addition, more than a few of the students really enjoyed it and are continuing to play bridge in various forms ...
"Selling" bridge to the youth market
Rajesh, great point. When I first started going to tournaments, I often would kibitz as much as I played. Learned a ton from watching great players - and - still do!
Interview with Bronia Jenkins
The bridge world is SO improved with BRONIA in it! Fabulous interview! GO GET 'EM, Bronia & Team!
Interview with Jan Martel
I haven't had a chance yet to watch the interviews. But - I have watched Jan perform miracles for the bridge world for years. How she does all that she does - and, so incredibly well throughout - almost defies belief. Jan surely is one of the most deserving Blackwood Award winners ...
Interview with Jill Meyers
Yet another fine interview, Oren! And - great to hear both bridge and career stories from Jill - the woman who excels at everything she does!
USA2 Semifinals, Day 1
I can't recall which match it was, but another north did fail to make the play. And - while Ralph is one of the top players in the world, I would say that most playing that same day are pretty good. So - please do not diminish Ralph's fine decision ...
Max Schireson's bidding problem: A4 86 AJ9762 KQT
Yes, in fact I think most today play that IF you have just a penalty double - you must pass. Double is "transferable values" - which is essentially what you have. Not perfect - but about the best one can do on the auction.
BBO Vugraph - Where are the women?
I love Oren! I don't think,however, that he was the "missing in action" operator. And in any case - accidents happen. Just so sad that all the effort was made TO have the match online.... and then "operator error" (so to speak) prevented it from being viewed.
