Doubles When Partner Has Overcalled In Notrump

Assume that you play negative doubles when partner has opened in notrump.

What would be your preferred agreement for doubles when partner has overcalled in notrump? Are doubles still negative?

If your doubles are negative when the opps have bid only one suit (either via rebid or raise), what do you do on a balanced decent hand holding something like xxx in their suit on which you might expect a doubled contract to be best (based on strength, vulnerability and form of scoring)? Do you expect the notrumper to have a hand suitable to re-open with a double?  Do you expect the notrumper to re-open with a double with Hx? Will you be able to hit the opps when they're in an 8 card fit but outgunned? Will you be able to hit the opps when they're in a 6-1 fit?

On the new suit auctions, assume 2 natural and non-forcing.

Please select up to 8 choices.
