Should I have passed instead of doubling?

I don't think you need to wonder about what to do when someone bids as appallingly as West. It should not happen very often.

Best to double with such a hand,
Then East can put in the not unreasonable 3, then assuming opponents still bid to 5, the heart lead is really obvious.

Wish we could still downvote sarcastic gits.

Actually I was the one who bid 5 - I took my partner for extreme heart shortage after he pulled the double and so I hoped for the A lead ruffed in dummy.

Freak hands are tough and it's a realy fine line between raising 4 to 5 (your ruff in dummy could be their overuff) but it's not a juicy penalty missed at all.

East will (or should) run to 4 or even 3 in passout seat and you ain't getting rich or even plus if you misstep.

That said, passing out 3 is equally tough.

Hi,

the first question is, what is the meaning of the X?

The X occurred in the passout, but after both sides did limit
their hands.
I would say, tha X is pure penalty, so X is fine, it is even
matadory.
Responder has no reason to run, he has no bad surprise for
opener, in fact the Kx in partners suit is ok - it is a ruffing
value.

With kind regards
Marlowe
