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.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Steven Gaynor's bidding problem: K843 A65 Q52 763
Despite the flat shape and lack of spot cards, you still do have 9 decent HCP, 4 trump and the potential of working values, depending upon partner's hand. If I have a way of showing a constructive raise (and in my partnerships, I'm able to show a 4 ...
Dahl and Oshlag Win Fast Pairs
And - auto penalties if you go above and beyond the time allotted.

Is this San Fran, Eric? I could handle this weather for a while - but - all year long? No thank you. That being said, I surely would NOT classify this as a "natural disaster"! (If you would, Eric - you must then live a charmed life!)
I don‘t understand Drury
Put me in the "Drury lover" category. Though I remember when one of my partnerships first adopted it. We'd forget. So - there we'd be, in 4 of our major in a 5-2 or 6-2 fit - and - the contract would MAKE and we'd be the only ones there ...

Georgie - natural weather occurrences happen virtually everywhere, as far as I'm concerned. Pretty much comes down to pick your poison: hurricanes, tornadoes, ice storms, blizzards, blistering heat, floods, droughts, wildfires - and on and on and on. Of course, some of us live in an area where the weather is ...
What will keep you coming back to NABCs?
Lotsa regionals in the Olden Days. An NABC? I'm guessing NEVER and NEVER in the future, too! (At least, not MY future!)
Robb Gordon's bidding problem: 6 Q8742 A75 AQ76
Robb, as stated originally, of course bidding can hit the jackpot (though I'd NEVER pick 4 with that suit!! Double IMHO would be the only other sane choice). Again, though, I can think of a myriad of hands where the jackpot would be going to the opponents if ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AKQ9 AKQT54 T AT
Frankly, Rohit - I do not. I was expecting something like either: KQJxxx and out - which would be why he did not open 3 at unfavorable. Or, KQ98xx with maybe Jxxx of spades on the side, etc - which again would be why he felt 3 originally not appropriate. I ...
What will keep you coming back to NABCs?
Well - having never organized anything like an NABC, it was a suggestion only. Sorry if it won't work. I do recall nationals that did have shuttles ... and they seemed to be OK. Maybe it only works in some cities.

Jeff; you are correct there! And - I'll tell you; after growing up in Chicago, adjusting to Minnesota was BIG. And I do NOT mean weather!
