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.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
Trick one is a different animal from all others - IMHO.
Tanking to get a read
Doug - thinking about something should always be allowed. Yet, if you are taking time not to think about the hand but in an effort to get a "tell" from one of your opponents, that is wrong. I'm not certain how you can adjudicate which "tank" is due to thinking ...
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
Frankly, Barry - I personally think that this is not the right way to handle playing to trick 3 when a declarer was too speedy. Wait until you are DONE thinking about what you need to ponder - and then play a card. Doesn't it go without saying that you're ...

Tanking to get a read
Marty, no; you said nothing that would make me think I had been doing the wrong thing. Part of why I wrote was I was curious what you would think about such an incident. What I said to my opponent was wholly true. I think sometimes that those who are ...

Marty; I had an experience many years ago about which I would like to hear your view. A regional Swiss; an opponent of mine is one of the top players in the world. I'm declaring and I know I am cold for my contract. Yet I also feel our ...
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
And I prefer screens because then I don't have to worry about "taking advantage" of any tells from partner! I hate it when I have to sit there and not only think about the hand and what I ought to do, but try to figure out if taking actions ...
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
Whole different kettle of fish, Joe. A multitude of reasons why someone might not respond rapidly when playing online.
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
Phil, I don't understand why it is a "slippery slope". Clearly some people give more away with others. And, no matter what some commentators here are saying, it is legal to take advantage of your OPPONENTS' mannerisms. And I also don't understand what "actively fishing for them" means ...
