Michael Xu's bidding problem: AQxx Kxxxx AQ Qx
I usually overcall with this shape, but thought this hand just strong enough to double.

In bridge composer you can use F8 and Shift-F8 to rotate the board. When you've rotated all the boards as you like you can use tools-all boards, type ctrl-a to select all boards, and then choose board/Auto Dealer/Vul.
Doubled undertricks...history lesson required
Under old scoring if you could know your opponents were making a grand, and vulnerability was favorable, you need to take 2 tricks to have a profitable sacrifice. You are conflating what players do (making sacrifices that require only a few tricks to be worthwhile)with what rulemakers do, (we ...
