Cue Bid – Communication for Partner’s Bid

Cue Bid

  • Situation #1 :  your partner has bid AND your opponent has bid
  • Bid:  Your opponent’s suit at a higher level
  • Partner communication:   10+ points AND 3 cards in your partner’s suit (or minimally game values and no particular direction). 
  • Situation #2 :  your partner has bid 
  • Bid:  4    (This is NOT Gerber)
  • Partner communication:  proceed to game in your suit.  
    • Your partnership has game point count or length for game.
    • This may be a closeout bid, meaning do not consider slam.

Strategy: forces bid to continue to game
