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.

It CAN Be Done
The cameras ARE packed! Leaving for the airport in less than an hour! Thank you for your kind words, David - and for all YOU do for bridge in our community!
It CAN Be Done
Jeff - it is a labor of love. Truly. And although I am not a professor, I love working with my students at Carleton. I had INCREDIBLY wonderful mentors when I first started learning. So my small way of "paying it forward" to a new generation.
Dick Bruno's bidding problem: A4 AQ4 AKT43 AK4
I saw Mark Lair do it once in the USBF trials - against a world class pair. It worked :) Was very smooth and in tempo.... (Whoops; was not over 2. Nevertheless, I was impressed!)
Mike Cassel's bidding problem: QJ6 K5432 J9 K92
I was torn between 2 and double. But just not quite enough wood for 2 and that suit is pathetic!
Billy Rosen (1928-2019)
Joe - thank you for letting us know about Jeff's generous gift! I hope Billy's family knows of it. What a wonderful way to honor Billy.
Congrats College Pairs Winners!
Alexander; think positive! Maybe not right now - but - perhaps down the road. It CAN happen!
2019 Buffett Cup
David - thanks so much! Hoping that many bridge players around the world - and WANNABE players, too, will watch the elite bridge and ENJOY!
Andy Caranicas's lead problem: Q543 T753 A QT63
I lead a club as the odds seem highest with this suit that the A, K, or J may be beneficial. As for the long thought - seems like that could be a variety of issues: enough for game? slam? should a major be trotted out? NT? Who knows?
Not Losing Money on NABCs
One "like." One more than I would have expected ....
2019 Buffett Cup
Thank you, Josef! An honor to get to be with the creme de la creme of our game!
