JohnBlu writes 'My partner and I play SAYC. What is my best bid? I think I should compete with a double, despite having only 2 hearts and the 3 clubs, because I have no better bid. My partner insists that I cannot double, per SAYC, because of the heart shortness and the club length. He says I should pass and await developments..

I rank calls as follows...
1. Pass. Partner is always right.
2. 1 = NAT Exaggerates quality and length.
3. 1N = NAT Slight overbid.
4. Double = T/O. Misdescriptive^

* Unless 1 could be short and you have agreed to ignore the bid. e.g. X= s, 1/1/1 = NAT. 1N = Raptor.
