Do bridgeplayers LIKE conventions?
People like easy fixes. Memorizing a convention is so much easier than improving your cardplay or defense.
Mike Bell's bidding problem: Q8765 KQ762 AK6 ---
Genuinely shocked that people are considering not bidding game here. That was not on my radar as an option. I choose to make a mild slam try with 4. Our good hearts will prevent repeated forces if partner has the trumps we need.
Steven Haver's bidding problem: AQ8 953 QJ8 QJ93

Stuart King's bidding problem: A J842 J64 QJT53
Sorry, got the vulnerability the wrong way round. Re-posted here: https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-2-dc5doh9mg1/
Difference of Opinion
I am not sure what the laws have to say on this, but I would expect that the opening leader should be allowed to know the opponents agreements as well as what they both thought was going on during the auction.
