The first round of bidding was normal. When West decided to bid 3 he had dug a three-foot deep trench that would spell his demise. He knew he had the best hand at the table and refused to be shut out. On the bidding, East could hardly hold very much in terms of high card points.

The "Just this one time" Double

In a Texas-Hold’em Tournament, you will often see a poker player get up from his chair and pray to the Poker Gods “Just this one time”. He has put in most or all of his chips in the pot, is in a losing position and is imploring the Poker Gods to reward him for his aggressiveness just this one time. They seem to forget that this prayer is repeated much too often in a poker session. At his first turn, East was unsure how to act...he chose the conservative course and passed.

The Russian Roulette Double

If you jump out of a plane with a parachute, we call you adventurous, daring. If you jump out of that same plane without a parachute, we say you have a death wish. Experts encourage bridge players to interfere with their opponents’ 1NT openings, hoping to disrupt their easy search for their best contract. The science of bidding after a 1NT contract is quite accurate.
