Any attempt to wake partner up is improper. I would tell LHO that I don’t recall whether we can answer their question and call the director. A pleasant approach might result in a teachable moment. Besides I don’t get paid anything to do the directors job.
Do you double or not?

Defining 544 hands in 2/1 auction
So with 3-4-4-2 you respond? You describe 2 as balanced or natural but might be artificial, an artificial bid not allowed in ACBL land (if 2 cards are possible the bid must be game forcing). Many play 2 as artificial and waiting - this puts the onus on ...
