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.

NABC Hotel Cancellation Policy
Michael, I have no legal background. Yet, I know that most hotels have a time limit by which if you do not show up, they bill you and can indeed sell that room to someone else. Perhaps the laws are different for rental properties versus hotel properties?

I must admit I far far FAR prefer having the tournament begin the day following Thanksgiving. For that reason (airline pricing) plus travel vastly easier, too, outside of the Thanksgiving mania.

Congratulations Bridge Winners

Why not just have enough rooms so those who would like to attend - be it for 3 days or 12 - can get a room? And please note; I have never had to do this in my life ...so I am quite certain that there are all sorts of complications and ...
Toronto NABC Follow-up
Gene, plenty of big things in life that need fixing and aren't as they ought to be. Maybe we could avoid bitching and moaning about the teensy weensy items that aren't exactly to our liking? Can't speak for others, but when I do this, I am a ...
Changes to ACBL rules on announcement of 1NT range.
Paul, I play this range (14+ to 17) and we always state it as such. I do think it's wrong when pairs who also frequently upgrade still say "15-17." That being said, I do now and then have a hand with lots of 10's and 9's that ...
Changes to ACBL rules on announcement of 1NT range.
Call me crazy - but - I often am a big believer of simplicity and am here, too. Isn't it easiest to have everyone announce their range - even what might be considered "most common." Then no need to wait to see if someone has forgotten - or grab the CC, etc., etc ...
Why are there round robins in the World Team Championships?
Nigel, BAM would be a very different contest. And as for luck - what about those who win because they are earning 430 instead of 420? Each format has its own "luck" - no?
The (Very) Hideous Hog
