This deal is from Saturday evening’s pair game:
East dealt and passed. South passed, too, and West opened an indisputably light 1. North, not content with a simple jump to 4, decided to start with a double. East bid an innocent 1, and South, responding to the takeout double, upgraded a bit and bid 2. West passed.
North now tried 4, but South, believing this was a slam try in spades, “signed off” in 4. North persisted with 5, and South – not yet quite sure what was going on – tried 6. North plowed ahead with 6, and an exasperated South turned to East and said, “Aren’t you going to start doubling?”
