You hold:
Scoring: IMP


The auction starts:
2* - pass - 2* - pass
pass - Dbl* - pass - ?

2 shows a multi with a weak hand, 5+M and poor strength
2 is P/C
Dbl shows a hand that would bid like the auction went 2-Dbl (so normal takeout - not balancing, probably 4, <4 and tollerance for unbid suits, opening values)

What do you do?

3D. No way I'm sitting for this, although it may be the winning decision of course.

It's a very sound principle that take-out doubles must be taken out. I see no reason not to do that with this hand, so 3 it will be. Penalty passes are so rare that one is better off if one forgets about them.

I think the same, but at times I just get tired of too agressive preempt style like this one. You don't need the same hand to penalice a serious preempt from a joke do you?

I do think this is a more attractive pass than if the auction went 2 X P to me though, since I might not like partner's red suit lead in that case but in this case I am on lead to start something through dummy to partner's takeout double. Still I wouldn't pass, but it seems like that is a point worth considering.
Please let me know about any questions or interest or bug reports about GIB.

I think this is a clear bid.
Please note: I am interested in boring, bog standard, 2/1.

2N or 3. The 's are hitting shortness, so 2N if available.

I wonder what X of 2 meant before making a decision.

Would show a takeout double opposite a 2 opening, like the auction would go 2-(Dbl)
