You hold: ♠ AJ10 ♥ K853 ♦ A832 ♣ J 4. Both sides vul­ner­a­ble. The dealer, at your right, opens one spade. What do you say?

An­swer: This is a judg­ment call. Many ex­perts would dou­ble. That ac­tion could work well by let­ting you reach a good game con­tract. But the hand is full of losers and looks bet­ter for de­fense. The ad­verse vul­ner­a­bil­ity and the pos­si­bil­ity of an un­wel­come club re­sponse to a dou­ble would in­flu­ence me to pass.
