THE SLAM ZONE BLACKWOOD (AND ALL THAT JAZZ) – Part 4

The idea of using bids below 4NT to ask for keycards is becoming increasingly popular.

Optional Roman Key Card Blackwood

In this variation you use 4♣ as an optional request for partner to show their keycards. If they are not interested, they respond 4. Anything higher, beginning with 4, shows keycards in the usual way, starting with 1 or 4. Where responder bids 4, opener can still ask for keycards. For example, after:

NS
12♣
3NT4♣
44
