Cue Bids

Blue Club uses the term Cue Bid in two different senses:

This page deals with the second of these uses.

Once a suit has been agreed, a cue bid shows some slam interest but promises nothing specific beyond that promised to date, and partner is encouraged to cue bid in response (and promises nothing extra by doing so); conmtinuing with cue bids beyond game does show additional strength and genuine slam aspirations.

Bypassing a suit in the first instance denies control of that suit; however where space permits you can bypass a suit in which you have only second round control to cue bid a first round control, and a subsequent cue bid of the bypassed suit provides a way of specifying a second round control of that suit, and first round control in the suit previously cue bid.
