a) Responding to partner's opening, any bid in a new suit at a level lower than game is forcing for one round (even over a weak opening)

b) Jump-shift responses or cuebids in an opponent's suit are the only forcing bids that can be made by a passed hand

c) A jump response to 2NT over a one of a major opening is forcing to game

d) A delayed trump raise at a level lower than game is forcing for one round

e) Jumps to 3NT or to game in a suit already declared by the partnership are not forcing

f) The two-club strong opening is the only forcing opening bid
