A most unusual 3 call. Maybe North peeked and anticipated the bad spade split?

Standard GIB canape response to takeout double. I don't know why this hasn't caught on in the rest of the bridge world :lol::o

Except for the fact that the bidding is hopeless and that partner has no way of knowing your suit lengths, there is nothing wrong with this bidding.

Good strategy but i think getting doubled in 2 might be an improvement.
Sarcasm is a state of mind
