What would you do?

Greco chose to double and heard it go P 2 P P X P P back to him.

Say you chose to double the first time, what would you do now?

Greco was regretting his decision. The other room played a more routine 3NT by North-South. Both tables took 10 tricks, but it was a bit more costly for Greco and Hampson as Fleisher and Kamil collected 1400.

This ended up being a 20 imp swing as Diamond would have won 6 imps and taken the lead if Greco passed.  Instead it resulted in a loss of 14.
