Not at all. We don't know what happened at the other tables. The real question is absent any action by West, would you double with the East hand against probably the top pair in the room. On the N-S bidding this hand rates to make 4H most of the time.

We don't know whether any other pair may have been in 4H doubled or not. One pair played 4NT making six. Several pairs were in 5 or 6 diamonds going down 2 or 3. We don't know how they arrived at these contracts maybe they got doubled and pulled to 4NT and/or 5-6 diamonds. See Ribs comment for another set of bids to get to 3C down two. After the bidding and the double would you pull to 4NT? Would have been a winning action???

Clearly South should have opened either 1H or 2H.

I don't think that is the case here. East mentioned that some players in this club were opening all kinds of untypical weak two bids, so that is why the ask. I still believe if you have nothing to say why are you asking? I f your partner has a good hand they can ask.

It was highlighted to indicate that West asked a question after the 2H BID. Sorry for the confusion.

Of course no one knows what the auction was at the other tables. I can imagine something like: 1H-P-2D-P-3D-P-3H-P-3S-4D-4H-P-P-X?? or 1H-P-2D-P-2H-2S-P-3H-P-4H-P-P-X

A diamond was led. If East ruffs and leads a low spade you win the Spade queen. Lead to your diamonds. Discard two clubs. One on the Spade Ace and one on the remaining high diamond.

5-10HCPS is our agreement and is plainly written on the card.

Please explain “lousy bidding”. You comment borders on being offensive.

“I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that west asks always or randomly”. I have played against this West many times and this is the first time that I can ever remember this person asking about a 2H or 2S opening. Nevertheless, South after receiving a diamond lead and the heart Jack covered by the Queen was cold for four hearts doubled. So I am OK with no adjustment on the board.

In the play East covered the heart jack with the queen. Now South was cold for four. All South had to do was win four heart tricks and lead a diamond to the board. East can ruff or not. E-W can only win 3 tricks now. This tells you that it was a suspect double coupled with bad defense and bad declarer play. A troika!!
