Cue Bidding

4NT Opening

Responses:

Grand Slam Force

5NT is only GSF if a JUMP to 5NT has been made. After a 2C opening. GSF is the preferred meaning over a trump asking bid.

Responses:

5M Raise

A direct raise of an agreed major to the 5-level shows interest in six, but suggest trump weakness. Partner should accept IF his own trumps are strong. EXCEPT: When there is exactly one unbid suit (or when the opponents have bid exactly one suit) when it means bid six if you can control the unbid suit.

egs.   1S  : 4S                 1S  : 2D
       4NT : 5C                 4NT = KCB in Diamonds.
       5D  : 5S
       5NT = bid a feature.     1NT : 4NT = non forcing BW

1S : 2S 3H : 4S 4NT = KCB in Spades. 3H not a cue but a "game try".
