THE RED MIST – DOUBLE TROUBLE [PART 5]

We have previously studied Takeout and Negative Doubles. A Takeout Double is made after the opponents open. A Negative Double is made by responder after an overcall. This month, we move into a very important family of Doubles, starting with Responsive Doubles. Responsive Doubles are made by the Advancer. Who is that?

“Advancer” is a relatively new term in bridge bidding, but don’t let it scare you away. The Advancer is the partner of the person who overcalled or doubled. Another way to put it is that the Advancer is the fourth player to act after the opening bid. Example:

OpenerOvercallerResponderAdvancer
11♠2Dble

Or:

OpenerOvercallerResponderAdvancer
1Dble1♠2♣

In both cases, it is the partner of the Overcaller/Doubler who is taking action. To make it easier to follow the discussion, we call him the “Advancer”.
