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.

Did S take advantage of a failed alert?
NP, Paul. Simply attempting to be clear (guess I wasn't!) about what I felt were the responsibilities of the "bergen raise" player.
What is the meaning of this double?
It means "my lead".....
The Next Step
A friend some time ago told me about the "advantages" of hearing aids - if you wish to take advantage. Sadly, no matter what we do to prevent cheating, there will be some who, somehow, come up with something "new and improved". If only these same people could put as much ...
Did S take advantage of a failed alert?
Why is everyone ignoring the "IF" that I stated in my post? I said "IF" 3NT is something conventional it needs to be alerted. I don't play this convention, so I didn't know if 3NT IS an offer to play in that contract - or something else.

The Next Step
Agree, Eric. But a) competing in a high level major event is more than a bit different from playing on BBO. And b) "banter" in major events seems to vary a lot, depending who the participants are.
Did S take advantage of a failed alert?
First, I'm not 100% certain what ACBL law is in this situation. Second, IF this isn't ACBL law (and I think it is not), then I believe that the law should be that if you made a bid that you thought was your agreement, then you should bid ...
The Next Step
I still do not understand why playing on electronic devices seems to dictate also playing in different rooms for some. Why can't we play at the same table, yet use electronic devices instead of hold cards? I can see reasons why security most likely would be heightened if we ...
