Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Key Card Blackwood

Cheating case on Hearthstone (another card game)

What does this double mean?
"You have the high cards, I have the clubs. He stuck his neck out, here comes the axe!" I would expect doubler has a minimum opening a club stack behind the bidder. I wouldn't be surprised to see dummy broke with a club void. LHO is gonna bleed like ...

How do you play this double
Support X should not apply to a natural 1NT overcall in the sandwich position. Opp stuck his neck out, now if you have the cards, swing the axe already. Now support X of an artificial 1NT is fine.
