With a balanced 20 HCP, North should open 2NT. With 15 HCP and no 4-card major, South should bid 4C (Gerber). North dutifully shows two aces and South is sure the partnership should be in either a Small Slam or a Grand Slam. With all the aces accounted for, South now needs to ask about kings before deciding on a final contract. After discovering that there is a missing K, South selects a 6NT contract.
