Match Point Pairs, At the Club

Long standing sound partnership.  South a first time visitor. North a Club director.

You have agreed to play cards/Balance of Power doubles.  A 1NT overcall is 15-18 and your overcall range is 7-16.  

The final East call was part of this bidding poll:

You might want to go there first  and vote - the full hand follows below.....

 

 

 

The question:  

Thinking in terms of the EAST and WEST bids only, please assess which of the 3 shown actions are inferior/wrong.  The final action by East is not a subject of this poll, nor is the bidding by South (admirable, no?).

Extra credit: Do Cards/Power doubles supercede takeout doubles in competitive auctions, or should East have a more classical takeout shape for their second double?

As it turns out, NS can make 2 or 2. EW can make 2N, 2 or 3. Thoughts?

Please choose from the below list which EW bids you DISAGREE with:

West's 1st Double
East's 2 freebid
West's 2nd Double
1 & 2
1 & 3
2 & 3
All 3 bids
I agree with the EW auction so far
