Thanks all, informative as always.

In relation to the above post - on the layout given, I suppose if partner launched straight into Blackwood rather than cue bidding after your proposed 3H second response (which I agree with by the way, now you have explained it), it doesn't really matter which Ace you have from partner's point of view, as it means he has no losers in whichever suit it is. So he can still bid 6NT once he knows about the Kings. Of course, were this not the case it just becomes a demonstration of why cue bidding can be more accurate than Blackwood. I don't play Gerber as with my lack of experience there are only a (very) limited number of conventions I can rely on remembering correctly, and of the two Blackwood is more common (and RKCB is useful in more situations, in my view).
