What is the largest penalty you have ever seen?
My partner held 0-0-6-7 at all red and when his rho opened 2c, he overcalled 4nt. Like the awful partner I am, I held 5-7-1-0. When we went back to our teammates, they said "if you went for 2300, it's a push." :)

Seriously, Tom? You can't recall ever passing over an opening bid and then doubling 1 (3?) nt for penalties? It's not like this is THAT rare. My last one was not that long ago (but not Toronto) with Leo Bell, and also involved the diamond suit. They decided ...

I guess what made my head explode on this one was my belief that double shows a trap of 1d, as opposed to the 3rd (1 for each of us so far) chance we get to make a takeout x of 1d. At the end of the day, this hand ...

In this situ, I would say that if anybody passed, then this player must. I'm not saying that would be my view in all cases, but here? What I really wanted to do was slip this person a deal where the auction goes the same, but they have a ...

I was going to get to this, Dave, but since you got the ball rolling...to me, this double was ch...egregious. A flagrant use of UI. The thing is, all that happened was polling. Yes, the polling went my way. Yes, I filed a Recorder form. But in my ...
The rest of the story...
Suppose literally every player would double because matchpoints is about "frequency of gain" rather than "amount of gain" and they literally unanimously judge dbl to be a 53% action. For this particular player, however, it's a 100% action. Yes, that seems wrong to me.

Folks, I wasn't able to post an article, so I wrote in the comment section of this post. Please continue downward to see it...

Jenni, it's not clear to me that you responded to what I asked you. Certainly I agree that the original polling question shouldn't mention the reason you're being polled (although most can figure it out pretty easily), my question was...AFTER you get the response do you ...
The rest of the story...
Well, I'm very disappointed that I was unable to post the article properly, since I have no idea how many people will click on this, see nothing and just leave, never seeing the thread, but what you said just now is exactly where the rubber meets the road. I ...
The rest of the story...
It seems to me that your situation is markedly different. You state that your partner made a bid that you WEREN'T SURE whether or not it was forcing, and you judged to pass. I don't see how the BIT affected this at all. It's entirely possible that ...
