RKC Minorwood - Switch feature Roman Key Cards Minorwood has a unique feature, not used in the RKC Blackwood or RKC Voidwood versions. In Minorwood the key card asker can be switched from one player to his Partner. After 1♣ - 3♣ - 4♣ - ?       - 4♦ = "Partner, you show ME your key cards !" Or after 1♣ - 4♣ - ?       - 4♦ = "Partner, you show ME your key cards !" Irrespective whether this switch is used or not the standard replies are :   - 4♥ = 1 or 4 keycards   - 4♠ = 0 or 3 key cards - 4NT = 2 key cards without the trump Queen   - 5♣ = 2 key cards with the trump Queen Likewise after 1♦ - 2♦ - 4♦ - ?       - 4♥ = "Partner, you show ME your key cards !" Irrespective whether this switch is used or not the standard replies are :   - 4♠ = 1 or 4 key cards - 4NT = 0 or 3 key cards   - 5♣ = 2 key cards without the trump Queen   - 5♦ = 2 key cards wit the trump Queen In other words, the bid immediately after the 4♣ or 4♦ RKC ask is reserved for a possible switch, and therefore not used as a key card response ! To keep it simple this switch feature is not used in these Solo bidding exercises. Therefor after - 4♣ - 4♦ = 1 or 4 key cards. © 2016 Michael Furstner
