Roman Blackwood - An adaptation of the Blackwood convention using the responses after a 4 Notrump slam try:

Response

Meaning

5C

0-3 Aces

5D

1 or 4 Aces

5H

2 Aces without extra values

5S

2 Aces with extra values

Note: The Blue Team Club system exchange the 5C and 5D meanings.  Further, the original Roman Blackwood used 5H and 5S to show "matching" (same rank, color, shape) or "unmatched" Aces.
