~The Gerber Convention

The Gerber Convention is used to ask for aces (and maybe kings) after partner has opened with 1NT or 2NT. Some players use 4C as Gerber whenever the last bid has been NT. Responses to 4C are
~4D: zero or 4 aces
~4H: 1 ace
~4S: 2 aces
~4NT: 3 aces

4NT can now be used as a close-out bid.
5C can be used to ask for kings in the same fashion.
