There exists a negative aspect of “routine approach (or attitude)”: mechanical thinking, “only tips” or lack of imagination.
Probably there exists more adequate English term for that. In Polish there is a notion: rutyniarstwo.

Let's start with an element of the problem and an aspect of my meaning of “routinity”.
“Routine player” W will often not throw on spades tricks any card from Kxxx holding.

Ben, your comments are very deep - as always. Nevertheless double has also another meaning: it alarms pd that hand has clues, so he tries to analyze the play with a maximal attention!

(1) It was at MPs.
(2) If I play low they will continue and pd will be at difficult position: what to throw without any hint?

“Lightnerness” of double is standard among experts.

In my opinion there is another disadvantage of playing 10. Against strong opposition.
Assume we play ten and E follows with 9…

W had: Kxx A9xx Qxx
I put small in first trick.
E won and played 6 having in convention card that from Q109 should go ten…..

It's a pity, because I was close to tell you what was the real distribution………

If E has AJ9, W can not infere this. Since after seeing my 10, he must assume I have to hold 9.
If E has QJ9 then it will be counterproductive for WE next underleading A.

I wanted to shock E to stop him from automatic spades change. But - yes - I assumed they are experts.
In fact - when you make an analyze of hearts spots - there is no risk in throwing 10.

It increases chance that E will play hearts if he does not possess A.

I think that S can even dump ten.

Simplistic four clubs is not idiotic. We can dump a diamond and still - in many cases - will enter dummy through 10.

This was my first choice too. Remember we are at MPs (we do not need to win the contract). All in the saloon will play after the same bidding and the same lead. It is not a good idea to duck spades because they will change to clubs.
If we play 2 we will do not have guess in the second round!

Mass is more than obvious at IMPs. Here 2 must be taken into account seriously…

4N is obvious but it has a disadvantage. After pd will bid his Minor they will have oportunity to bid 5. After direct 5 they will have less information.
