Help wanted for drop-in play

I enjoy playing both individual tournaments and drop-in (first available) casual games using the Android BBO app.

I notice, however, that I sometimes get in bad contracts because of assumptions about partner's conventions. Recently I was kicked out of a game after bidding 3H, supporting partner's suit, after a 2/1 sequence that I assumed was forcing. It must have made 6 or 7 (I was scuttled after partner looked at dummy and realized the underbid). Partner and I both had BBO numeric ranks showing, so I assumed he was playing 2/1GF. Is there a recommended way of handling agreements in casual games? It doesn't seem right to ask or tell during the auction.

The usual thing to do is look at partner's profile, to see if they have a system listed. You can also ask when you first sit down with them.

Most people assume SAYC with random online partners, not 2/1GF.

Thanks for the suggestion.

How do I look at the profile from the app?

Tap on the player's name, their profile will pop up.
