By Mike Diesel

Volume III explains safe, 1430-based Roman Keycard Blackwood sequences after Partner's weak or preemptive opening, after interference over an RKB Ask, and after Exclusion Keycard Blackwood (EKB). It shows how to reply to RKB with a hand containing a void. This shows super-positive replies to a 5NT Specific King Ask, and introduces our Side Suit Control Ask, which is equivalent to the more complex rules played by some experts. It proposes the unusual treatment of jumping to five of a major trump suit to show 1 or 4 keycards and no queen of trump, rather than making an RKB Ask. For those who make Namyats openings, it shows two ways to explore for slams.
