2♣ multi, edited J. Faure

This 2♣, follows the comments over the previous post.

2♣ is ,under opening value, if showing 4♠, 6♥ - or 6♠, 4♥ , rare hands for which there is no biding in known systems.

All others hands are FG ( 4 losers G-1),

so The first response must match the weak hypothesis

                R -2♦, = fit ♥ , 3 cards are enough or 2 cards + a void   

               R -2♠, = fit ♠,     

               R-2NT strong fit in Mjs , = invite---(rare)   

              ,R -2♥ , no fit in any Majors

a) opener weak .      opener pass if fit               

                                 after,R -2♥ , no fit in any Majors     

     opener 1) = pass with 4♠, 6♥ -               

                 2)= 2♠, with 6♠, 4♥ ,

b) opener strong FG ( 4 losers G-1), O’ shows 4 hands types:

O’-NT =24+hpc)

O' with ♠, G-1 (FG)

O' with ♥ , G-1 (FG)   except after R-2NT,

in these 3 cases fit is known or does not matter so opener looking for slam, asks part strength:             

2 NT =asking for Aces, then the touching minor = asking for Kings

4) -O’ with both Majors + FG only 6,4 or 6,5 or 6,6------ (never 5,5 there is another way for this pattern)             

          after, R -2♥ a fit 2 is still possible

  O' -3♣ = any 6,4       R-3 ♦, = asks the longer suit

  O' -3 NT = any 6, 5 - R-4♣ = asks the longer suit

  O' -4♣ or 4 ♦,= 6,6, + void in the minor

The only flaw is that the contract could played from the wrong side.

corollaries are:

 -2♥-opening  = strong 8 tricks, 5 losers

2♦-opening = strong in minors or in ♠ , or weak -2♥ -   

  a) R -2♥ - relay says nothing 

  opener rebid- 2♠ = 5 losers in ♠ 8 tricks classic (G-2)

                      -3 of a minor 9 tricks in minor classic (G-2)- 2NT 22,23 hp-

                      3 NT 10 ticks in one minor (G-1)

                          R-4♣ , nil poc   R- 4 other suit is looking for slam (shortness or Control?)   

 b) R-2 ♠, fit -♥ -to play at least -3♥

-O -2♠ = weak, in 2nd seat, pure 6 cards, in first or 3thr seat can be 5 ♠ +4 or 5 min.

I hope you'll find this revised 2♣  multi more palatable; any comment would help.
