Just play bridge robot.



2NT was described as balanced, invite. Double was described as "Takeout double -- 2; 3-5; 3-5; 3-5; 17- HCP; 18 total points"

Sometimes you should pass if you want GIB to takeout. Other times you should make a takeout double. I haven't figured out the sweet spot for the type of action yet.

Wouldn't be surprised if Gib is counting it's club shortness and your 18 TP and deducing contract is down.
Sarcasm is a state of mind
