Key Card Berger

Suppose you open 1 NT with 17 HCP and partner responds 2H a transfer to 2S, but you rebid 3S becauase you have 4 spades.

If partner then rebids 4C. Why not treat it as a Gerber bid with Key Card request.

It would be very unlikely that opener had no Ace nor 5 ey cards. Thus opener need only show 1,2,3 or 4 Key cards.

That can be done with two ranges, 1or3, 2 or 4. or some other combination.

This agreement could also apply when responder holds a very long minor suit.

Does anybody care to enlighten me about pros and cons to this idea. Has it ever been suggested?
