Power Doubles Part 1

Fri, Sep 24 2021 Gavin Wolpert, Hazel Wolpert Interactive Lecture Wolperts on Competitive Bidding

When the opponents open the bidding in front of us and we have a hand that is too strong to make a simple overcall, our only way forward is to start with a takeout double.  When the takeout doubler doubles and then bids again, they are telling their partner "I don't actually have a takeout double, I was just too strong to overcall". 

Part one of this two part series does a basic review of takeout doubles and then goes in to describe how to navigate these strong hands when your opponent's open the bidding.
