Mason Barge's bidding problem: AJ4 Q874 A92 QT5

Mason Barge's bidding problem: KT4 852 AKQ J853
I don't know, Christopher. These were opponents. My guess would be yes. The 3 bidder intended it as a help suit game try in hearts. His partner read it as diamonds. Both are excellent players. I might actually have the hand wrong - they might have been bidding spades ...
