I am still dredging up old memories. This hand comes from the pre-Walsh, pre-support doubles era. I don't think it would be any easier today. In fact harder, perhaps, with support doubles. So let's suppose it came up now, with double showing three-card heart support. And I really don't want to hear about all these problems being solved with a two-level opening to show 18-19 balanced.

At the time of this problem, double of 1 was either penalty or extra-values DSIP. If penalty, this doesn't really look like the right hand. DSIP looks purrfect.

What's your call?
