Penalty Pass

West opens the bidding and partner places a takeout double, telling us to choose a different suit.

But West's suit is also our best suit - we don't want to choose a different suit! What should we do?

Penalty Pass in Bridge

After partner's double, what do you do?

Bid 1NT
Bid 2♣
Bid 2
Though diamonds are our best suit, we don't want to bid 2. West would have a field day! The best solution is to ignore partner's request and simply pass. (God bless you jokers who selected "Redouble")
