Opponents remind you of your own failure to alert -- AI or UI?
Let's suppose that a similar auction occurred: Namely: You are first to bid and it goes... 1S-(X)-2H... Out-of-turn, doubler now asks what 2H means... at which point you realized that this is a good raise to 2S. Doubler has asked about a bid out-of-turn... is this still ...

@Kieran: How do you play 3C in these sequences?: (1D/M)-X-(P)-2C-(P) (2D/M)-3C
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: QT82 KJ5 T5 AQT6
Partnership agreement to preempt w/ 5-card major factors in. Pard did not preempt - so 5 spades a bit less likely. Not mentioned in OP... so I guess that this inference is correct. If the above is per OP's agreements... then it seems as if I'm more likely than ...

Just so... yet some sort of expert treatment/analysis of doubles is sorely lacking.

Your remark seems to be in almost universal alignment w/ Bridgewinner agreements. Yet, as an old-school bidder, this treatment is a bit foreign to me. I've a rather extensive bridge library... and every book I've read treats this raise as invitational to game showing extra values; yet the ...

All my points are outside of pard's suits... I have Aces though... but outside values sways me towards pass.
Kevin Cline's bidding problem: KQJ742 AQ4 6 932
4H jams the auction - no clear continuation exists. I think we can make slam, and my guess is that it's in spades.
Why are you playing bridge?
I play bridge for the intellectual challenge, and enjoyable (generally) social interaction with others like-inclined.

Agree. 3C invitational as has been suggested by Eric Sieg is better.
