Incredibly poor tournament decision

Monday tournament 12k Guarantee, $175 buyin. Most outrageous situation I have ever witnessed..
Player in seat one is playing pocket Queens, flop is 3s 6h Qs, betting goes along with a female player in seat 6 with Ks Js, when the turn comes 8d player in seat 6 bets 3500 units and seat 1 raises to 20K units, 3rd player in the hand folds and player in seat 6 tanks for almost +3 min then shoves all for a total of 25,300 units. Player in seat 1 has earbuds on and assumes he had her covered with his 20K bet and shows his hand. At that point the dealer stops the action and calls the floor. (I was told later the TD/ floor guy's name is Dennis and usually makes terrible calls.) Dennis listens to the dealer for what happened and decides on the spot, player 1's hand is "DEAD" and all chips go to player 6. No burn card + river, no penalty (usually 1 round), nothing. They say they follow TDA rules but, they make arbitrary decisions here that kill the game. If you want to play Mickey Mouse poker this is the place. I won't ever play there again no matter how good their tournaments are. Above is but 1 example of many severe irregularities I have witnessed and others I've been a victim of as well. Way better choices out there.. don't settle for unfair + unprofessional treatment at this dive.
