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.

Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: QJT72 --- AT7 AQJ87
I would have opened 1.
So you want to be a Vugraph operator
Tomasz - see Greg's comment above. While I am surely not as well informed as a number of others, transporting VuGraph operators from Poland likely would be prohibitively expensive. I believe that next year USAII trials will be held outside of Chicago. Fortunate that there are a number of quite ...
So you want to be a Vugraph operator
Tomasz, sure you will do the fundraising so the USBF can bring 'em over - correct? :D
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: Q86 Q9874 K7 Q98
I've always been a believer of getting in early rather than guessing whether to balance later. So - if I double now, got it "off my chest" and can leave the rest to pard.

Partner may have made a light takeout double as it is. If it goes P P to him - he's done. And responder may have a light 1NT. So there you are, with your heavy penalty double that WON'T occur because some of you are waiting for the 2nd ...
So you want to be a Vugraph operator
Thanks to ALL who undertake the challenging role of operator - and, of course, to Jan. After years of watching this tiny dynamo perform heroic tasks throughout the bridge world and beyond .... I can only imagine that her middle name is actually SUPERWOMAN! (If it's NOT - it oughta be!!!)

Bridge post-mortems at the table
"Even when we're not on the same page we don't discuss it then. It isn't going to come up again that session..." AU CONTRAIRE, Michael! Many moons ago, I'm playing in a Swiss with Gary Cohler. I'm declaring a suit contract and take a finesse ...
Matchups in the USBC Round of 8
Max - your entire team was awesome. Truly, to have your match be as close as it was throughout almost all of the two days of play was quite impressive. While we all like to win, you and your teammates should be quite proud of how you acquitted yourselves in your ...
Delayed Alerts: Theory and Practice
I was pretty sure it was not proper to do so. They looked a bit shocked and taken aback at my request - but - did stop explaining unless we asked.
