This deal is from Saturday evening’s pair game:

East dealt and passed. South passed, too, and West opened an indisputably light 1Diamond Suit. North, not content with a simple jump to 4Heart Suit, decided to start with a double. East bid an innocent 1Heart Suit, and South, responding to the takeout double, upgraded a bit and bid 2Spade Suit. West passed.

North now tried 4Heart Suit, but South, believing this was a slam try in spades, “signed off” in 4Spade Suit. North persisted with 5Heart Suit, and South – not yet quite sure what was going on – tried 6club suit. North plowed ahead with 6Heart Suit, and an exasperated South turned to East and said, “Aren’t you going to start doubling?”
