The arrow switch doesn't work
The average club with 15+ tables will not have seen either DB or GR. It will be an afternoon club and the session will have an NGS rating of considerably less than 50% if it has one. It is likely to be not affiliated or considering leaving the EBU umbrella ...
Erroneous Claim
You challenged the call, did not say 'Play it out', the director gets to play the hand _ not stupidly but carelessly. Declarer gets his tricks. Both sides admonished for arguing once the TD is called.
Is it better to double or bid 1H?
Whatever you choose you can expect a forcing defence and personally I prefer to have 5+ trumps in the hand that has to deal with it. That plus the odds of the fit favouring 1H make that a clear cut choice for me.

BW 2/1: 100% GF?
Since I do not play 2/1 I abstained. But I would comment that 40% have an out and of the 60% several prominent players, who say 100% forcing, have an out when they play it. Surely simple is Standard American.
Fail to alert, the ruling and what wold you have bid?
The experienced pair are not looking at matching CCs. If E has the version showing a normal raise and has bothered to read it you cannot invoke this clause about protecting themselves.
Bid or Pass?
How many had to contend with an intermediate 2H opening?
Bid or Pass?
At my table my 76 year old junior partner would have opened 1D.
Bid or Pass?
This hand I open 2H. We play 11-15hcp in 4th seat.
Public statement from bridgegod.com and myself
