* Not Exactly a Balancing Double.

The opponents have NOT found a “fit”. How many HCP could Opener have?
(11) 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 !
I would advise North to do a Double! Asking his partner to bid another suit!

(A TAKE OUT double)
Promises an opening hand & SHORTNESS In the suit that opponents bid.
Play the hand both WITH & WITHOUT - The TAKE OUT Double!
