This is about recognising a slam hand and bidding acccordingly


What are you going to do if partner shows that there's an ace missing ?

His hand could be A10xxxx, xx, AJx, QJ where slam is close to zero play or A10xxxx, Jx, AKxx, x where it's cold

I agree.
Novice and beginner need to learn natural bidding and understand when they have partial, game or slam.
Slam seeking conventions can come later (and Jacoby 2NT may be one they can live without even then).

Hi,

The Hand illustrates, that jumping directly to 4S after 1S is not the best.
If you rule out a 4S response, you need to find out a 2nd bid, absent agreemnt, it is common
to lie / misrepresent the Hand by bidding a minor, just to Keep the bidding going.

This is a pattern that comes up regular by both opener and responder.
I would use the hand as an example for this Kind of method.

And discussing the "lie": If it Comes up to often in certain situations, you add a conventions,
that caters for the problematic Hand type, e.g. a forcing raise of openers Major.

With Kind regards
Marlowe
