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 loves her pet birdies.

Jeff - the growth of bridge is a good cause. No?
Best way to handle this situation?
Ray, Ian said this about the bid: "We have not discussed this auction, nor any similar situations." Ergo, this is not a case of not being able to remember; it's a case of not having discussed this scenario. So - I'm with Kit. Alert, and if they inquire, offer ...
BW 2/1: 1!d-2!c-2!D
If I had: AJx, KJ10, Axxxx, xx I think I'd always bid 2NT. Extend it further to something like: AJx, K109, J109xx, Ax - can't imagine anyone rebidding 2, despite having five of them.
