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.

Whoa, Scott!
A Recommendation for USA Bridge
Jack, I'm very ignorant about how all this works. So - question. What if your district said, "Fine to have the tournament here, but you are going to have to get some people in place to do the work. We don't have enough volunteers to cover it all." It ...

Steve, you know I agree with you that I think there are superior ways to handle appeals other than our current system. But - I must address some of your other points, as I disagree and want to explain why I do. First, of course we can think when we need ...

Even David's comments about Flash? Come on, Scott - BE HONEST!
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Amy, one need not actually use the word "unethical" to be otherwise insinuating that they might be just this. Here is a post of yours: "Sarah, I might feel embarrassed to call the director if I was in a "bonkers grand" as you say, but would do it anyway IF ...
Here I Go (Again)
"In fact, I am willing to bet that with sufficient corporal punishment, I could get even “Flash” to bid and play hands in under 3 minutes. And still very well." Challenge! Otherwise, I'm with Paul. You nailed it, David!
Appeals and Pollees questions
Michael - do you think that the pair in the Spingold was ashamed when they chalked up 1430 for making 6NT when George J was on lead with AKQJxx? (And managed to lead one of his top honors?)
One Disillusioned NLM
Steve, if you've read all my (way too many) comments, then I'm sure you know that I strongly prefer committees to polling by directors. But - it seems that for the purposes of THIS discussion about THIS particular hand, it really is moot. Unless and until the law gets ...
One Disillusioned NLM
Amy; try giving it to the panel, along with a statement that your partner has thought for some length of time. I'm afraid you'd likely be proved wrong. Kit, Michael R. and Justin are 3 frequent panelists (or Directors) for Master Solvers. Already each have stated that they ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Ray, I've played with screens many times and am familiar with how to alert when they are used. What I did not know is why one is supposed to alert when one makes an artificial bid, the next hand alerts and then the next player redoubles. I thought (in ...
