(283) Balancing Seat & Reopening Doubles

Hi Everyone

This month we continue our discussion of doubles. We move our discussion to doubles that are later in the bidding, when things tend to get more complicated.

1 (283) Balancing Seat & Reopening Doubles
2 (284) Non-Takeout Doubles: Card-Showing, Maximal, and Penalty Doubles
3 (285) 2nd Round Doubles
4 (286) Other Special Doubles

In our first discussion this month we focus on using double to compete in the bidding when we are in the pass out seat. We look at traditional balancing doubles as well as “reopening” doubles attempting to get our side back in the bidding after we have opened the bidding.
