The auction is complicated in today’s hand. North opened a strong 1NT and East doubled for penalty. As South, I would have run at this point. The commonest escape method is that redouble shows a single suited hand, partner must bid 2C and the redoubler can now correct to their suit. For two suited hands, 2C shows clubs and a higher ranking suit, 2D shows diamonds and a higher ranking suit and 2H shows both majors. Here, South would bid 2D and North would play there. For whatever reason, perhaps system- related, South passed. West, with scattered values, is happy to defend and North runs to their club suit. The EW defensive method is known as VTP, an acronym which means the first double is Values, the second double is Take Out and subsequent doubles are Penalty. East cannot double 2C for penalty but West makes the second double, which is for take out, and East passes, converting it to a penalty double. South now runs to 2D and West makes a penalty double. This method, VTP, is useful against anonymous preempting methods like the Multi 2D too. Although one might make ten tricks in either major or nine tricks in 3NT, it is much safer to take the sure plus from the penalty. At pairs, it is important how many other scores you beat but not by how much. At teams, it is important to get a big score even if it is not the biggest one available. West led the QS. East overtook this, cashed the AD and continued with two more rounds of spades. South ruffed, led a diamond and finessed the jack. The ace of clubs was ruffed by West who returned the two of hearts to partner’s jack and ruffed a second club when partner returned them. South, thus, went two down vulnerable for 500. The event was using imp scores compared to the field average ( sometimes called Butler imps) with the top and bottom scores being ignored. The average for the board was 410 so the vulnerable penalty was worth 3 imps.
