Major Suit Responses To Unbalanced 1!D
I've also used this, excellent method for partnerships that need something simpler than transfers but still want to put idle NT bids to good use.
Major Suit Responses To Unbalanced 1!D
I rather prefer the 1 opener to use transfer rebids over 1M responses when playing unbalanced diamond. After 1-1: 1 = 4 spades, forcing. 1NT = minors, at least 5-4 either way (4-4-4-1 shape has a raise or a 1 bid). 2 = 6+ diamonds. 2 ...
