2 is + m weak ; screens used, South and West on the same side.

Many questions coming from this hand :

 

Bridge

- In this auction, should that reopening double be penalty or take out ?

- Admitting for the sake of the discussion, that X is take-out, would you have doubled ?

 

UI

 

South took a long pause before passing 3(he admits he thought for 45 seconds to 1 min before passing ; also he admits X was better)

=> Would you allow an auction from North ?

 

After the UI

After North doubled, South passed, West asked, and South answered : "i thought for a long time, this has to be penalty".

 

Declarer went down 1 (after the lead, he cashed AK , discarded a but still lost a black card at the end).

 

The TD barred the re-opening X so the score is 3 -1.

 

=> Does the fact that South explained it as penalty and passed accordingly (putting the pair at risk to score -530) change anything ?
