If North had passed, East and West might have found their way to a successful three no- trump, an unsuccessful four spades or a part score. We'll never know because North did double. East might have redoubled to s h o w some spades and good general strength, but he decided to jump to three spades. This put it squarely up to South. He had a round opening bid with four hearts in addition to his five-card suit. He wouldn't have bid more than two hearts if he hadn't been jammed, but he wasn't going to be shut out. He bid four hearts. West p a s s e d and East made one of those "money from home" doubles. It looked too good to be true. West opened the 10 of. hearts. He knew his partner could stand a trump lead. South struggled manfully but the best he could do was to take six tricks for a nice 1,100-point loss.

In addition his main strength was in the opponent's suit, not his own. You should have at least seven high-card points for a negative double and with a minimum s e v e n or eight you should have all or nearly all of those points in your suits, not the enemy's. South gets some blame. He didn't have to bid four hearts and East has to get some credit for his inspired three- spade bid that gave South the opportunity to take the~ disastrous plunge.
