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.

Second Thoughts about U31 Junior Event

Different strokes, etc., etc., Richard!
U31 junior event

Ethical, questionable or cheating?
Trick one is a different animal from all others - IMHO.
Tanking to get a read
Doug - thinking about something should always be allowed. Yet, if you are taking time not to think about the hand but in an effort to get a "tell" from one of your opponents, that is wrong. I'm not certain how you can adjudicate which "tank" is due to thinking ...
