The Trap Pass and Reopening Double

Fri, Oct 07 2022 Gavin Wolpert Interactive Lecture Wolperts on Competitive Bidding

Negative doubles and takeout doubles are incredibly important because of how often they come up.  Unfortunately in these situations we can no longer easily double the opponents for penalty.  This doesn't mean we can't get them.  This class will talk about how to get penalties in a takeout double world. 

Topics we will discuss:

Trap Passing as responder (when to pass for penalty).

When to make a reopening double as opener.

Trap passing as opener.

When to reopen double as responder.

How to react to a reopening double.
