ATB: Diving to disaster
I don't recall this ever having been forgotten in one of my partnerships. "If you have pre-empted, double is action ahead of partner" is a very simple rule, and double is such an unusual action that partner always remembers it too.
ATB: Diving to disaster

Definition of a penalty double
I know some who would respond "It's just bridge". I know others who would say if they want a bridge lesson, they should pay for one.
Defense agains natural 2!c
I play that after a takeout double, we use 2 as our Lebensohl bid.
