Kickback is ok, but if you want to go all in, my earlier book, Variable Key Card Blackwood, introduces ace asking methods that make Kickback seem silly. With VKCB, you can distinguish between whether the key cards are all aces, or includes the trump King. You can also in many sequences answer key card by also showing the holding or lack thereof of another side key card, or even two, like the king and queen of the secondary suit. All of this below five of the agreed suit.

VKCB is to Kickback what Kickback I'd to Easley's Blackwood.

As I previously stated, the reason I like Mungar's Kickback is that, for its capabilities, it is quite a bit simpler than Kantar's suggested asks in minor suit auctions. I am sure that your VKCB has many fine ideas, and I have enjoyed several of your well written books in the past, so it is on my "buy" list, but I don't know what use all these books on advanced asks will do me as all of my play is with fairly casual partnerships.

I've read VKCB. It made my brain hurt. :)

Good! It should.LOL

And we ask police officers, prosecutors, defense lawyers, and citizens to enforce or abide by it? The legislature continues to write unreadable statutes. Gibberish should not be enforced as law."
