This is not a bidding poll.  That is being held and the overwhelming vote is to pass.  https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-2-nrskgw4a3u/

This poll deals with the psychological nuances of partnership relations and the  effective use of verbal communication in maximizing partnership harmony. it attempts to obtain your insights and techniques in building a partnership.

The questions are an attempt to determine what East should say to West the next day when they are discussing West's actual  call of three hearts. Do you believe in the iron glove or the velvet touch? Would you lie a little, or a lot, to keep partnership harmony?

You can vote for more than one answer. If you check other, or even if you don"t, feel free to comment on how you would deal with the situation.

 

Please select up to 2 choices.

Three hearts was a terrible bid. How can you possibly contract for nine tricks with a ten loser hand vulnerable?
It was close but I believe pass was a better option.
It was close, and while I might not have chosen it, I can see why you chose three hearts.
Three hearts was a great bid. Your explanation that you relied on the law of total tricks make sense.
Say nothing,
Other, Elaborate if you wish.
