The term cue-bid has two completely unrelated meaning for constructive bidding and defensive/competitive bidding respectively.

Bid of opponents' suit Edit

A cue-bid is a bid in a suit known to be held by an opponent. Because such a bid could only rarely be natural, it is typically reassigned an artificial meaning. Examples of cue-bids include

If the opponents' overcall is artificial (such as Michaels cue-bid or Unusual 2NT), it may show a suit other than what was bid. In that case, a bid of a shown suit is called an invisible cue-bid, and may be artificial.

Control showing bids Edit

They are a very different kind of bids which is completely unrelated to the above. See Control-showing cue-bid for details.
