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.

David Wetzel's lead problem: J43 5 843 KJ9852
Pretty much a total guess with your system - no?
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: Qx AJTx KJxx Kxx
If memory serves (shuffle deal and play), I believe that partner held: KJxx, x, AQxxx, Axx. So - slam does make. I'm still not sure if partner is supposed to bid 4 over my 4 - or - if I'm supposed to cue bid my spade queen - or - just ...
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: --- AK986 J75 AQ432
Craig, I didn't understand your original post. I actually thought you were kidding around when you made your last statement. Perhaps you could be more clear and simply state your agreements when you make a post so others know the "conditions of contest".
Congratulations to Jan Assini
Jan, way to go! So happy for you!
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: --- AK986 J75 AQ432
With our methods, if partner wished to play in a minor, bids would be pass or correct. Only one way to get to no trump; bid it!
Another Dream About The NABC
Actually, Michael - not only did I "sleep talk" - I "walked" a lot, too! (And scarily, still do it some today, though far less than when I was your age.) Of course, those who know me know I am be WEIRD - and some weirdness still lingers now!
David Neiman's bidding problem: A97 AKJ984 74 KT
Even at matchpoints, you do get bonuses for bidding and making a game. While I realize the value in science, I am going to go with my gut here. We have at least a 9 card fit, values seem to be more on my right ... If I jump to game ...
Another Dream About The NABC
Michael - I know I've had many dreams about bridge - but afraid the details have gone hazy. That being said, while in college, my roommate told me that often I would sit up and bid in my sleep! Three diamonds, anyone; anyone? :D
