What is Cue
My preferred agreement: 1. A bid of the enemy suit (whether it's natural or quasi-natural) when no call but pass has occurred after the initial enemy action is a cue bid. 2. Any other bid of any enemy suit is a cue if and only if a) an enemy ...
What Does This Bid Mean?
A manufactured reverse never crossed my mind, with 3=3=6=1, I'm bidding 2, 3, 2 or in some rare cases (playing 2/1), I might gamble on 3 on the previous round. Maybe too many years playing Precision on my part, where a ...
Continuations after Minorwood
I prefer Kickback, but in the Minorwood auction given both 4NT and 5 are signoffs, 5 is the queen ask, and 5 is the king ask as in Kickback. In the analogous club auction, 4NT and 5 are signoffs, 4 is the queen ask and ...

your comment is needed
I generally do only if it accompanies other honors, but I usually won't lead the ten itself unless stiff or doubleton if it's my highest card in the suit.
Which Slam Is Best
Notice North is at least a queen shy of his bid, and if he had Q never mind K 6NT rolls home.
Your thoughts on whether Alerts or Explanations are required or should be required or voluntarily should be done
In a club where I am a regular, the other regulars might as well wear signs. At tournaments, this would only apply if you had met them before and they had done something or several things that clued you in.
