Range Stayman after a Protective 1NT?
David Gold recently wrote an article in English Bridge recommending 1NT as 11-16 after 1 any - pass - pass. Advancer’s 2 acts as a shape and range enquiry. After which, the rebids are as follows:- 2 = any 11-12, no 4-card major; 2M = 11-12, natural; 2NT = any 13-14 (now ...
