A point of curiosity
I wouldn't include Polish Club in the mix. While its 1 opening can be strong it is most commonly weak NT.
How do you bid first ?
I voted differently but my choices were also recorded incorrectly so I changed to abstain.
Go for 6!c?
"Bidding on Target" by Rosenkranz & Truscott (1992) describes both Truscott Two Diamonds and New Zealand Two-Club Relay.
Go for 6!c?
Since no structure was specified I don't know if I can which is why I said "if". I would have a chance playing two-way Stayman but it would be much harder if I had to start with a transfer to .
Go for 6!c?
I voted for #4 but I what I really want to do is offer a choice of games between 3NT and 5. I am willing to stop in 5 if we can figure out that it is superior to 3NT and want to get to 6 if ...

Opener's jump rebid of 3NT after a game forcing 2/1 response

EDITED TO ADD LINKS BELOW There were two separate articles: • [url=https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bw-21-openers-3nt-rebid/]BW 2/1: Opener's 3NT Rebid[/url] • [url=https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bw-21-jumps-to-3nt/]BW 2/1: Jumps to 3NT ...
A Useful Inversion
I think there are too many losses after 1-1M-2NT including, but not limited to: • Responder can't afford to pass 2NT when opener's shape, power and support for M are all unknown • Responder can't sign off in 3M • Responder can't support either of opener's suits ...
