Cuebid, Last Train, Slam-Bidding Problem
Frances if 3NT is an offer to play does that suggest something like a 4333 shape? Also does that mean that raising to 4 shows the bad hand and a cue bid shows a slam interested hand?
Cuebid, Last Train, Slam-Bidding Problem
Agree Steve one of the big upsides to 3 being a slam try in is that we have a fully functional cue bidding sequence.

How do you ask for aces?
Michael, i am interested your preferred methods over 4 suit setting. We cue bid then turbo but in a new partnership i might cue and use 4NT as key card. What do you consider optimal?
How do you ask for aces?
