The cue bid is used in this instance to show a specific hand that has four trump support and is at least a limit raise. Partner with a minimum will return to the original suit, and the cue-bidder will only go on with less than an 8 loser hand.

You can also use it after minoropening. Then a cue show the same as inverted minor.

1C - (1S) - 2S ; shows club support and a limit raise or better.
