Slam Bidding


quiz-pic

This is a voluminous topic, but the focus for this quiz is when to use (or not use) Blackwood (assume RKC). Don't use Blackwood with a void, or if you have a side suit you are worried about. Use control-bidding instead. Above 3-of-the trump suit, a bid in a new suit shows first or second round control and slam interest.

Part of this topic is learning how to avoid bad slams. For more, read this article.
