We all know by now that there's not much point in doubling for business, even in most obvious penalty situations when playing with GIB. But did you know that you also shouldn't double for takeout?

what do you expect to happen if you X for takeout? both GIB and human are going to bid s. after 2NT as cards misfit I would have passed 3. 3Nt was optimistic bid with 5440 hand and limited or no entry to dummy.

I expect the robot to bid 3H after 2N, like any sensible player would do.
