Bidding and making a small slam (12 tricks) or grand slam (13 tricks) yields high bonuses ranging from 500 to 1500 points.
However, the risk is also high as failure to fulfill the slam contract also means failure to score the bonus points for a game (300-500).
In addition to the rare redouble that follows a penalty double, bridge features a far more common use of the redouble.
It occurs after your partner opens the bidding, the next hand makes a takeout double, and you have 11 HCP or more.
This redouble usually spells big trouble for your opponents!
