Marion Gebhardt's bidding problem: AK874 AQ82 A43 8
Fine, but that's not the question here. So you want the perfect hand to double 5-4-1-3 with 17HCPs.

"Apparently the enemy activity “convinced” S that N’s 2S did not show extra values". Partner commented that he thought I might be just wanting to compete??? My comment was you have to trust your partner. If he is doing something off-the-wall and you get in trouble on the hand ...

Partner's hand was Q10X-J10X-QJ109-KX. I don't quarrel with the original 1 NT call. With 9HCPs he must take action over the 3 Club bid. The hand makes 6NT (By South), 6 Spades and 6 Hearts.

Richard is right on. Partner knows that you have 25+HCPs between you and that that you would have to beat 3Clubs four tricks doubled to compensate for a vulnerable game. So a double here can not be for penalty. You don't want to bid 3 Hearts and potentially ...

Why not? I have 17 HCPS and a decent Spade suit. Partner might have 4 Hearts

West opened 1 D; Create starts with the North hand
I think this is what Marion is asking about.
On the actual hands E-W, would have been down three vulnerable.
I think this is what Marion is asking about.
In the actual hand partner was 3-3-1-6 and bid 3 clubs making. I asked the question because we had not discussed what a double of the 2 Dia bid would be. With the rest of my partners we had agreed that the double would be takeout.
I think this is what Marion is asking about.
Why bid 2 when West presumably showed 4 hearts with the double of the 1 bid?
I think this is what Marion is asking about.
The reason I am asking, is I asked a partner of mine how he would take the double by North. He said penalty. A very good player once told me that he plays the double as 99% takeout when he is under the bid (2 dias. in this case). That ...
