Called SES (Special End Signal, but if suit fits to partner afterwards he can go further !)

(if you want to compare the 2 opening 6-11 after Pass)

Examples of the SES (Special End Signal): used when there is a possibilty that you can not see which suit is closed, So the normal endsignal 4 = now forcing and 4 is pass or correct. Other bid is Slab which means: I know your suit (SLem Asking Bid) and asking for indicated side value. ( I know with a void in partners closed suit and you want to play your 'own' 4M , it can't be bid, So it is...)

An other instrument after the 3 no side Queen or King or the 3 with side value
is the
4} bid which means: Jack enclosed in your solid 7 carder? and I normally know your solid suit
via the 3 bid: 5x = no, 6x = yes and then pass or final contract
via the 3 bid: 5 etc. = no, 5 etc.= yes
including info where the side Queen or King is located,
and then final contract

 SCHEME 4} via the 3 bid: 5 etc.= YES + info where the side Queen or King is located 7222 solid suit wìth AKQJ 7c 5 6 6 side value in (standard order for equal lenght) side value in side value in 5 6 6 side value in side value in side value in 5 6 6 side value in side value in side value in 5 6 side value in side value in or lowest bid is lowest suit with side value in it. Normally the side value is not so important, otherwise you had asked for earlier. In that case you can bid 4 then too. If side value is already known bid after 4 5 or 6 in the solid suit

 SCHEME 4} via the 3 bid: 5 etc.= NO + info where the side Queen or King is located (if possible to bid) 7222 solid suit wìthout the Jack 7c 5 5 5 side value in (standard order for equal lenght) side value in side value in 5 5 5 side value in side value in side value in 5 5 side value in side value in or 5 side value in which suit unknown For both schemes: RR knows the solid suit

examples regarding the 4 bid:do you have the Jack in your solid suit?

 Example to figure out Jack in the solid suit W AKJxx Qx E E/non Axxx xx x AKQJxxx Axx xx origin board: example
 -- 2 8-12 any 7222, can be closed too relay [2] 2 min/max or max or any 7222 closed 9-12, with a side Queen forcing relay [3] 3 any 7222 closed 11-12, with a side Queen pass or correct 4} 4 diamonds where is your Queen? [4] 4 in spades Jack included in your solid suit? 5} 6 yes* 7 P *if 5 = no Jack, bid 6

 Example to figure out Jack in the solid suit W AKJxx Qx E E/non x AKQJxxx Axx xx Axxx xx origin board: example
 -- 2 8-12 any 7222, can be closed too relay [2] 2 min/max or max or any 7222 closed 9-12, with a side Queen forcing relay [3] 3 any 7222 closed 11-12, with a side Queen Jack included in your solid suit? 4} 5 yes and Q 7 P if 4 = no Jack + Q, bid 6 | if 6 (= Jack + Q) or 6 (=Jack + Q) bid 6

even with singleton Jack in your own hand (and partner has AKQxxxx) you can ask for the Ten :

 Example to figure out theTEN in the solid suit W AKQxx xx E E/non J AKQTxxx Axx xx Axxx xx origin board: example
 -- 2 8-12 any 7222, can be closed too relay [2] 3 any 7222 closed 9-12, no side Queen or King TEN included in your solid suit? {5} 6 yes* a 4/2 break in spades is okay 7 P *6 = no Ten ,and you may end in 6
