If Dealer East opens 1 , South Doubles? or overcalls Spades?

I would Double with a two suited hand and 16 "playing points" with my singleton . I note most Souths were Declarers!

IF south DOUBLES, North should jump a level with 9/10 HCP. (That is the way to tell your doubling partner that you have more than 9/10.)

Does South open a WEAK TWO?
Since South only played declarer 3 times, I guess
the answer is "NO", most of the time..

West should lead "TOP OF A RUN" against almost any contract.

TOP OF A RUN gives away the fewest tricks to declarer. Since partner holds the K & 8, it didn't cost anything this time.

East has 12 HCP, I'm almost ALWAYS going to open that. The E/W that passed it out got a "good" board.

As South, after 2 passes, am almost ALWAYS going to open 1  and pass any bid that partner makes. (3rd seat can open "lite")

s making was the BEST BOARD for N/S.
