Bergen Redouble Over Notrump - A method to show opening 1 Notrump partner assurance of a solid contract when intervening opponent doubles to show a one-suited or two-suited hand. 

Example: 1N - (X) - XX  shows 6-7 points. 

Conversely, when responder does not redouble, making a 1 Notrump contract is doubtful.  However, if opponent's double was penalty-oriented, then responder's calls follow the DONT Convention:
