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 misses her pet birdies.

Collegiate Spring Online Tournament Results
Kevin; I believe the team from the state with the colder mean temperature moves on. (ONLY KIDDING; SORRY WITH THE WINTER FROM HELL I COULDN'T HELP MYSELF!)
Collegiate Spring Online Tournament Results
Hi Gary - if I m reading correctly, the U of MN team finished 3/4 overall! VWD! I am the coach for the Carleton College students. Two teams played; I believe that some of our players are newer than others. Very proud of them all competing! Last year Minnesota had ...
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: QJT87 AQT87 T 54
David - and I thought about doubling! But - not sure how the auction will proceed after that - and - seems like one is still stuck with "how do I let partner know I have reasonable values and 5/5 in the majors?" A vexing problem overall, to be sure!
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: QJT87 AQT87 T 54
Aviv, I could surely be totally off the wall. But - if I had a good diamond raise, I think I would double, and if they run, then bid diamonds. I see no one has chosen my odd call (at least not yet). I just can't bring myself to pass ...
Helgemo and Helness situation
Christopher, I have no desire to retract my original comment.
Helgemo and Helness situation
LOL, Christopher! If you think that there was consent in all these cases, well.... what can I say? As for Helgemo and Helness it seems that they did not pay taxes that they owed. I'm not sure that I've seen anyone stating that they did not do this ...
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: QJT87 AQT87 T 54
3 can't be natural on this auction, can it? Oh well; just one board if partner thinks that it is!
Memphis hotels
So very true, Jeff! Thanks for pointing this out - and - (although I do already have a room) - thank you, Karen, for those who do NOT and want one!
A Simple (I think!) Question
John; if I don't cover the jack, isn't clear that I do not have a card higher than the ten? Frances; I agree that the 10 would show 1098. How does your partner know if you have 1098 or 1098xx?
A Simple (I think!) Question
So here is what I am not understanding from all those who voted to play the 10. Whenever people unfamiliar with UDCA ask me how it works, I explain it this way. It is the opposite of standard. If in standard you would have played a high card to encourage ...
