LESSON 20.4: QUICK TRICKS WHEN DOUBLING FOR PENALTY

a) Quick tricks of the player who makes a penalty double
    - ace-king in a six-card or more suit is worth only one trick against a suit contract
          
    - a king is worth one quick trick when held over declarer (K Q x  = 2)
        
    - a fourth trump is worth  quick trick; a fifth trump is worth one quick trick
b) Quick tricks of the doubler's partner
    - two to three quick tricks if partner has made a positive bid (an opening bid or a takeout double)
           
    - zero to one quick trick if partner has made an overcall or a preemptive bid
        
    - no trick if partner has passed or given only a single raise
