don't click on the table. It is like TV, if I don't like a channel, I'll switch to another one or switch it off.

WBF alert procedure
From what I understood from the players: North 1NT (10-13)-East P- South 2H(natural). West thought 2H was a transfer and doubled to show hearts, east realized that 2H was natural and expected it to be take-out. When the smoke cleared, EW were -800 for a bottom. TD ruled ...
