Neither vulnerable in matchmpoint duplicate, I, South, opened 1 club with the following:
(All x's are seven or lower.)
West doubled for takeout. North redoubled, showing approximately 10 hcps. East passed and so did I. West "rescued" himself with a 1 diamond bid.
I bid two clubs. West and North passed. East doubled (for penalty) with QJT9x of clubs and some side values. (Of course, I didn't know this until later.) I redoubled, 1) to try to get game, 2) on my sixth trump, and 3) my presumed preponderance of points.
"It looks like top or bottom" for both sides," I announced. West nodded.
The result for all boards was two clubs, down one. What differentiated the scores was that there were two undoubled contracts, two doubled contracts, and one redoubled contract.
Was it reasonable for me to redouble even though it didn't work out this time? Or did I make a mistake earlier by not passing out or even doubling West's one diamond bid? (This would have been a good result in this game for N-S because E-W would have gone down one.)
