Example text

Q3 QJ875 A84 K53 Pass. You have a relatively balanced hand with a marginal suit and wasted high cards facing a partner who could be broke. Bidding 2 with this is awful. [ 62 ] Takeout Doubles 2. 8632 KQJ874 64 8 This is the kind of hand you can bid 2 with. You have a good six-card suit and you have shape.

It may show as few as 5 HCP.  8 6  K 8 4 3  Q 10 8 3  10 9 5 This is a nice minimum raise to 2. In other words, a hand that raises partner’s suit is not going to be very scary to the other side if they compete.

I will offer my thoughts, but recognize that you can find different opinions elsewhere. It is agreed that you need a very good hand to double and then bid a suit. It is useful to see why.
