What do you assume? What should they be?

The USBF junior training program recently started a new cycle which means we have a number of first-time partnerships. In a single 18 board practice match, we had the following three "double accidents" where one partner thought a double was penalty, the other thought it was takeout. Of course, the answer we strive for is that each partnership have agreements and that is a large part of what we work on. But agreements do take time to develop.

For each of the three auctions below, indicate what you assume double would mean in a first-time partnership having not discussed it and then what you believe it should mean in an established partnership with good agreements.

1. (1S)-1N-(P)-P-(2S)-DBL

2. (1C)-P-(1S!)-DBL where 1S denies a four card major

3. (1N)-2H!-(2S)-DBL where 2H is hearts plus a minor

Please select up to 6 choices.

1. Assume takeout
1. Should be penalty
