A bid that a player has an obligation to make, usually because the system played so requires. Forced bids are very rare in natural systems like Acol but do exist in relay systems.

Forced passes are far more common. Suppose you open 1NT and partner raises to 3NT. You are always going to pass because you have already described your hand and your partner has chosen the contract.
