What does the double in this sequence show for you?

Please comment if selecting "other" or if your meaning varies by a passed hand, and comments distinguishing 'standard' and 'ideal' meanings would be appreciated too.

If the suits are different, e.g. (1) 1 (1) x, does that change matters?

What about variations in level, e.g. (1) 2 (2) x?

[I presume the meaning will change if partner overcalls in a major, unless you already define this as showing Hx support, as true support normally does so immediately; I'll leave that for another day!]

Please select up to 3 choices.

4+ spades
