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.

Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: x AKQxx J8 T9xxx
No support doubles. And I'm sorry, Steve - but - I'm not sure what those kind of doubles are! (So I guess the answer is we do NOT play them :) )
Mike Cassel's bidding problem: --- Q97643 653 AQT2

Jan, thank you for all this information (AND as always, your tireless and superb service!) I know that many of us (alas, including me now and then) are critical - and sometimes, ignorant, too. It's easy to say something is wrong and should be done differently. Figuring out HOW to ...

Mark, it is impossible to "accommodate visitors from all over" if by "all over" you mean every nation on the planet. Moreover, I've said - over and over (though only a few seem to hear what I am saying) that you cannot please everyone no matter what. Some people cannot ...
