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 misses her pet birdies.

Liam Milne's lead problem: T3 2 AT82 KT9862
Good point, Anthony.
Implicit private understanding?
Richard, just to be clear. While some may play that 1NT is game forcing (and I know some who do), I do not play it that way. I'm happy to see statements that anything above 12 is an alert. I've never seen anything to that effect.
Implicit private understanding?
Ray, if you look at how Ed stated the case, my understanding is that he put the alert procedures in italics, and his opinion/view in regular type face (oops; I am quoting Ed below but don't know how to get the italics in! Check above to confirm...) 1 ...
Implicit private understanding?
Ray, no way my 1NT forcing bids are GAME forcing! Two different animals! My only point is that I'm not aware of any point range for 1NT forcing one round. The primary point of it is to let the opponents be aware that the auction 99.9% of the ...
Implicit private understanding?

Great Marketing Piece for Bridge

Larry, I think this is a lesson hand such that when your RHO makes a bid that is unclear to meaning and LHO says "not sure" - best to call for a director at that point. Not 100% certain what the director might have done. But at least you might well ...
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: QJT87 KJT3 KJ3 J
Might pass at "real bridge" - but - it's MATCHPOINTS!

Open Letter to ACBL Board of Directors -- Housing Bureau, NABC Rooms, Montreal Summer NABC
Mike, wholly agree with "different strokes" and all that. But - in your post you highlight some of the differences. I did not have an easy time finding housing. And, some of us (me now, too) don't get around very easily at all. If you do - you are fortunate! I ...
