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.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
The Best Convention Ever
Extra values, but a hand where bidding a suit would not be appropriate. You open 1, pard bids 1, they overcall 2. You have: Ax, qx, AKxxx, AJxx. Double.
The Best Convention Ever
Ken, I do know how it works - and - I have had situations where I did wish we played support doubles. Yet, I still prefer a different use for "double." I realize that many players vastly better than I am love it (not to mention the guy who invented it!) Yet ...
The Worst Convention Ever
Drury is one of my favorite conventions! I love being able to play 2 for a plus rather than down 1 in 3....
The Worst Convention Ever
Oh,no! I'm pretty specific. I asked about their carding, got a big smile and was told yet again "EVERYTHING we do is standard."
ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
"a rare fun event" You mean the others are NOT fun, Nigel?
The Worst Convention Ever
As much as I detest negative 2 - and the dreaded MUD also .... I think that gambling 3NT does more damage than both of those. How many hands are cold for 3NT - but - ONLY if the OTHER hand declares! Just open your *X#*& minor and rebid it - let partner bid ...
The Worst Convention Ever
Dave, some battles are not worth the fight. I filed something about the player.... wasn't going to go after the director (though perhaps I should have done so....)
The Worst Convention Ever
Yeah; no kidding, Ed. There are players like that guy...and then people like a couple (in real life and at the bridge table) who are 1000% above board. I recall once having an auction where our side was declaring and they were defending. When it was over, one partner ...
What's My Range?
Wow. Sometimes I do find it fascinating to read people's responses. I would think that the one thing partner has promised is at least a semblance of a stopper. Yes, it might be xxxx which would not turn out to be a stopper. But - would I expect xxx or ...
What's My Range?
I must admit I do not understand the voting. Does anyone's partner bid 1NT on this auction with fewer than about 7 or 8 HCP? And aren't their values (at least theoretically) behind the overcaller - and - don't more of the values rate to be "known" in one ...
