Some help needed.
My point is there *are* exceptions. Exactly those ones (your example type is the same as mine). Obviously, 2NT is bid on the hands that are strong with stopper(s).

Something many players playing support doubles don't realise is that there has to be a strong-balanced option in there. The double is presumed to be support if minimum, Say you pick up Kxx Ax AQJx KJ10x and opened 1m 1m (Pass) 1 (1) ? I would double (wouldn ...

The old-fashioned Swedish approach is simple: 2 = 20-21 or strong, and 2 - 2M/3m are all non-forcing.
2d response to opening strong artificial 2C
I quite like the following follow-ups after 2 - 2; ?, where 2 is hearts-or-balanced. 2 = minimum balanced range (so reverse Kokish, 2 then forces 2NT) 2 = relay to 2NT 2NT = strong natural 3 | = GF in | respectively (responder bids the cheapest step ...
A loser-ruffing squeeze?
Sure, I agree.
