How would you rule?
I don't buy: 1) That a properly worded poll of players with West's skill and methods would find PASS to be a LA. 2) That Double and 4 should be treated equally. Double allows for all reasons Partner might have hesitated, and thus should be carefully avoided ...
How much did the ACBL ode in Hawaii?
District 17, of which Unit 373 (Las Vegas) is a part, certainly have had issues --- but I doubt seriously if they will/should talk about them.
Are these weak 2-bids?
Effective against all partners, too?
Poor pair game movements
"However, is the game for the players or the directors. Opinions will differ." Nic H hits a homer with that question.

He said 'fairly' standard. IMO, that means common among those folks who are familiar with punts.
In the dark. (ACBL)
If penalty does mean what the concensus says it means, per John, then I disagree that Doubling a weak nt to show a strong NT should be described as 'penalty'. The Double is a descriptive call; 'expectations' about making our best score are on PARTNER of the doubler.
