I have a question. Robot opened 1NT and I bid Stayman. Robot responded 2 and we have a fit. I wanted to ask for aces and bid 4NT which the robot passes. What is the correct way to ask for aces?

Here is the hand:

I'm not sure why you'd want to ask for aces, since with the heart and club situation, you're not going to have a clue what to do if partner replies with the very likely 2 - you may well lose 2 (or 3) club tricks before you know it.

4NT quantitative is standard; here you'd want to start with 3 which is an artificial, forcing, spade raise. You can then start cuebidding (after 4, 4, GIB will launch into Blackwood).

You have to establish the fit first. 3 is a forcing raise in this bidding sequence. In the next round you can ask for KC with 4NT. But does not make much sense with a void.

Very sorry about the failure to post the results. It slipped off my mind. :(
Does posting it now help to resolve any thing since the round 7 is already released?

twisterrz 16 - marmar52 27

Since neither played reported anything, both were scored as a 'loss' of 5VP/20. This can't be changed now that round 7 is released.
