Negative Double opposite 1NT opening
It depends on colors. Plating 12-14, at white on white, i reopen on any hand with a small dub in their suit. At vul on vul you have to be more cautious.
Negative Double opposite 1NT opening

Adam Kaplan and Allison Hunt Named 2014 King and Queen of Bridge
I first played with Adam when he was 12 years. One session (with a kid who was not yet a teenager!) was more than enough to see that he was a special talent. Everything i have seen since then has only reinforced that opinion. Congrats to him and to Allison ...
Henry Bethe's bidding problem: T32 Q865 AT AKJ4
