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 and managing several bridge blogs.  In "real life," Peg sells real estate in Minnesota, and loves her pet birdies.

The books have got to go.... Part II
Bill, I would add that there may be a number of variables that cause the difference. Bidding, system and rules thereof are only one facet.
The books have got to go.... Part II
Gene, Kieran, IMHO, is highlighting one reason why some people are not either learning bridge or advancing. In fact, if the ACBL were to have an "anything goes" policy, where partnerships could play that a 1 opener, for example, shows 8-12 with at least 5/4 in the black ...
USBF Junior Celebrity Guest Night: Jeff Meckstroth
David....... when has George EVER not been funny?!
The GNT's, a modest proposal
Yes, I must admit I agree with you, David. If you look at any of our major team games, they are not designed to be "randomized". Seeding in the 3 majors team events is theoretically designed so that the best will be meeting the best as the event proceeds. Take ...
dump bidding boxes - all in favour ?
John, I have a dear friend who has visual issues. Almost everyone has zero difficulty using the bidding boxes and stating their bids, too, when they compete against her. For the rest of us - as I hope you are seeing from the comments - bidding boxes are a marvelous bridge invention ...
Has the time come for some new Bridge Hardware?
Whoa! "And I still strongly object to bidding boxes, and the implication that everyone is a cheat" John, surely there are other excellent pluses to having bidding boxes beyond assuming many are cheating! Reviewing the bidding is far easier and silent; no one to overhear it. Those who have hearing ...
Is that alertable?
Michael - I agree with you to the extent that it is not facile to judge which of all the agreements people have ought to be alerted - and which not. But - think for a moment about your suggestion above. The auction goes 1H - 1NT - and you have: xxx, Qxx, Kxx, Jxxx ...
Should bridge go green?
Then I'm confused, Al. How would 2 people cheat online if they were being monitored? (And, I'm not saying it's utterly impossible.... just that close monitoring of 1 or 2 players would make cheating vastly tougher than unsupervised competition.)
Should bridge go green?
Al, I do think it is possible for one person to cheat online ... in fact, unless there is good security, easy to do this. You play on one device with one account - and with another log-in on a different device. Your partner could be unaware that you are able to ...
Is that alertable?
No, Ed - I think you miss my point. There is an awful lot of data on the convention card. How much am I supposed to study (particularly when playing pairs) as a new pair sits down? I believe that there are a number of treatments and agreements in addition to ...
