Slam is certain. How should you bid the grand slam?
Option A - The practical auction

Option C - The creative auction
Use Texas transfer with only 5 hearts to be able to establish hearts as trump. Then bid 4NT as RKCB to discover whether partner holds the ♥Q, a most important card for the grand slam.
