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.

Rich Newell's bidding problem: AKx AKQxx Txxx x
OK; Richard - you win. I'm guessing you raise with Kxxx, too. I would not with either.
Eric Leong's bidding problem: 9742 A54 Q5 AK92
If I'm supposed to bid something other than pass, I can't find it. Partner obviously has extras, but not 5 (no 2 call) and didn't support clubs after my pass. I'm guessing shape is likely: xx, xxxx, xxxx(x)? xx. Hoping someone overcalled a ...
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
Chris indeed nailed it. But - I'm with Steve. I think that the final part about disgorgement would simply be too difficult to administer. Do we expect those who cheated at the table to be honest about what they earned? Are we confident that sponsors would be willing to share ...
Rich Newell's bidding problem: AKx AKQxx Txxx x
There is the downside that if you bid 2 you might play 2. What would you do holding: Qxxxx, x, Axxx, xxx?
Time to simplify the laws?
Eric, if you played at a table with 3 other players but had tablets instead of cards, wouldn't you still be "playing a game with people"? Not trying to be facetious, and I understand other reasons why some prefer cards to tablets. But the "people" part I don't ...
Time to simplify the laws?
Marty, though I personally would prefer the electronic version for multiple reasons, I do surely understand why some would not like it for reasons #1 and #3. But for me, I would not want to put #2 in place. My "electronic world" had the players all at the table, as ...
How would you rule?
But John - surely the law allows a bid if it is determined that pass is NOT a logical alternative, no? As I mentioned earlier, add one more honor or add 1 card in length to spades and remove one of the red cards. Then I would think no one would ...
How would you rule?
Agreed about the double, Marty. Which is why, although I think it is clear to bid, I would allow 4 but not a double.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
David, from your first statement, I apparently inferred wrongly that you did think 2 sets of rules would be superior; sorry. To be clear, I personally DO think that this is a good idea for many reasons. I did not say that you thought "regular players" needed "special treatment" - so ...
One Disillusioned NLM
Max, these thoughts are guessing; nothing more and nothing less. But my guess is that Amy either believes it is OK to ignore laws that she thinks are poor or do not make sense, or that something seeming "impossible to ignore" can override how some laws work. Many have commented ...
