JaneMart wrote Ah! But @terrypause, if you don't bid 4 spades on the first round, you get faced with another decision as to whether to double or bid them on the second.. Double turns out marginally better, but the important thing is don't panic.

terrypause wrote the second time i played this....i dumped a spade...instead of trumping....and you make the contract ok...ignoring the rest of the spades completely...i think its called loser on loser??
