Several months ago I was introduced to a new idea (at least for me), and that idea would apply here; imagine West's double means: partner, I want to save (in 5). If you agree, run, else pass.

Had West passed the message would have been the opposite: partner, I want to punish.

Now I have several questions for you:

Do you think the idea I was told is a good one?

Would that idea apply here, or, in other words, were the polish players using that agreement?
