Double's ok in my opinion. Two things went against you: partner made a flaky bid; the opener was 6-5-0. Don't blame yourself. The BBO forum members have unanimously voted that your partner's bid was a tad too aggressive. On another day it might have worked well.

I'd have X'd also and note that if you hadn't X'd you'd still have gotten a very bad board.

It's all a bit random. West has massively under-bid, east has over-bid. Your partner doesn't really have the bid - but as I commented, I have made worse over-calls.

No, I wouldn't double. But difficult to guess what to do in these type of auctions.

full board if anyones interested:


no comment on the opp bidding - I was south and thought the 2H bid was very bad, but it's easy in the heat of the moment when it's led to a bad result, some of the comments on here have been very interesting and food for thought.

Maybe I shouldn't x idk



According to the link you gave dealer was South (you) and not the 2 opener. So were you coming from pass when pd overcalled 2?
