1NT is 10-12. Yes, this is a partnership disagreement about the basic nature of weak notrump auctions. We are not concerned with whether the double is "justified" on the doubler's hand evaluation, we are interested only in its meaning.

On this auction type, is the double takeout or penalty?

EDIT: Probably should have added that this is matchpoints.

EDIT: A correspondent has suggested I should have added "BOP; optional." So I have.

EDIT: A correspondent has suggested I should've asked whether over or under the opp bidder makes a difference. So I have.

Feeling rather incomplete this morning....
