An ‘asking bid’ is a bid made by the member of a partnership wishing to take control of the auction. It requests partner to give information about his hand, but does not itself directly convey any. Blackwood is the most commonly used asking bid.

Before making any sort of asking bid, you should check that your partner’s reply is likely to enable you to place the contract. If not, you may do better to find a bid that describes your hand.
