4: Splinter

You play precision and open fairly light (~ all 11 counts, good 10 counts, very good 9).
Thus 4 shows some serious slam-interest, but partner had a stronger splinter available, so he will definitely pass if you bid 4.
4, 4 and 5 are defined as control bids. 4NT standard RKCB, 5 and 5 exclusion key card. 5 is a general slam invite, most likely with good trumps as you would have found a control bid otherwise.
