1 Forcing / Bust

Using this convention, when bidding a minor — bid 1.  This is an artificial bid, saying nothing about having clubs.  This a waiting bid that forces Partner to bid their 4-card major if they have 6+ points.

Strategy:  This is a good tactic to play when Opener has both major suits, and is looking for a complementary suit in Partner’s hand.  Forcing a response at least gives Opener a chance to respond with their best contact bid.

Partner’s response:

This convention is opposite Convenient Minor.
