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.

Jeff Ford's bidding problem: A2 A94 AT42 KQJ8
I hate bidding 1NT with shortness and only one stopper. Ergo - double. That being said, if partner bids 2 then I think I likely am forced into 2NT. Don't think I should raise on Axx. Don't think I should pass with this hand. (Partner could easily have ...

Sabrina - believe me; you have company! (ME!)

Collegiate Spring Online Tournament Results
Hi Gary - if I m reading correctly, the U of MN team finished 3/4 overall! VWD! I am the coach for the Carleton College students. Two teams played; I believe that some of our players are newer than others. Very proud of them all competing! Last year Minnesota had ...
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: QJT87 AQT87 T 54
David - and I thought about doubling! But - not sure how the auction will proceed after that - and - seems like one is still stuck with "how do I let partner know I have reasonable values and 5/5 in the majors?" A vexing problem overall, to be sure!
Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: QJT87 AQT87 T 54
Aviv, I could surely be totally off the wall. But - if I had a good diamond raise, I think I would double, and if they run, then bid diamonds. I see no one has chosen my odd call (at least not yet). I just can't bring myself to pass ...
Helgemo and Helness situation
Christopher, I have no desire to retract my original comment.
