Joe Clark's bidding problem: T T653 AKT5 KT98
Double is the winning action here. Partner has KQ AQ9xx J98x Qx. 5H doubled down one was about 8% even though I dropped the singleton King. I think it’s more often right to double on this type of hand than people think.
The history of cheating in Bridge
Newwhist transferred all of the content from a Draft page. It’s impossible to know for sure, but it’s quite likely Newwhist was the sole editor for that page. Unfortunately the page it came from has since been deleted I believe. I have left a note on Newwhist’s ...

What is this double?
Yes, so you’ve said. But I think redoubling with hand c) is completely standard and this question is about reaching the best spot with an unfamiliar partner, unless you’re saying you think an unfamiliar partner would be playing this method as well. FWIW I’ve changed my agreement ...
What is this double?
The defence wasn’t perfect but it was always cold. I held hand c, probably the “clearest” double of them all. Partner should probably have removed to 3S with AKTxxx x QJxx xx. But if you double with hand 1 and partner has AKTxx xx QJxx Jx then I doubt ...
