I have never vote on BBO but anyone who suggest a X is getting a minus. Doubling here is #%$# clueless

It would be more useful to explain why it's so useless instead of downvoting everyone who thinks this is a reasonable choice. At least that would contribute to the discussion.

I think we are big favorites to make 5s BUT
I still think pass is right.

1. Can anyone really say we can beat 7 of a red suit
2. Can anyone say we can beat 6 of a red suit

the fact that we can set 5c is almost irrelvant--one
of the earliest things we learn about penalty x is to
not do it when opps (probably) have an easy place to
run to.

AT IMPS while we might be able to make 5s we have
zero clue just how much the opps can score against
us so it is insurance to pass and make sure the
damage is minimal.

At MP we are scoring a plus where 5c (no x) might
be going down more than either red suit with x
assuming opps can be set at all. We may not score a
top this way but odds are huge we wont score a
really bad score (not bad odds for a pure guess).
