Grand Slam Force


A bid of 5 Notrump after a trump suit is agreed upon asks partner to bid a grand slam if he holds at least two of the top three trump honors

. If the partner does not have this holding he bids six of the agreed suit. This bid cannot be used in conjunction with Blackwood as 5 Notrump is a component of that bid that asks for Kings.

A bid of 5 Notrump with no agreed trump suit indicates the trump suit as the last suit bid.
