"Grey" Double
Isn't this Snapdragon? Some S-support (typically a doubleton) and 5 D's. Points are divided more or less equally, we'd like to compete.
Peter Hasperhoven's bidding problem: 74 AQJ9842 AK8 2
Good point. Of course it is a simple NO on all counts. However, once you've seen it, you cannot unsee it. One could argue that in a borderline case, active ethics require you to pass after a slow pass and bid after a fast one:-).
