Matchpoints.  The bidding is 2/1.  Generally we play weak jump shifts.  (Soloway jump shift would have guaranteed a game contract).  E's lead is A.  Either 6 or 6 is laydown (opponents split 2-2).  Where did this bidding go off the rails?

In any event, how would you reach slam with your p and these hands (assuming that E-W remain silent throughout the bidding)?  What agreements do you consider vital to reaching slam here?  If you do not see the bidding reaching slam, how do you see the bidding reaching game?

 

Who is to blame for the part-score contract?
