2-way checkback in a Precision frame (1 = 10-15, 2+ )

I would like to seek advice from the bridgewinners community: What is the most efficient way to play 2 way checkback after the bidding starts 1 (2+ , 10-15) - 1/ - 1NT (11-13, BAL)? The following aspects are important:

  • We always bid 1 with 4 after 1 - 1, even with 4333
  • We don´t need a bid for weak or INV hands with 5 and 4+ , as we bid 1 - 2 respectively 1- 2 with those hands
  • The answers 1 - 2 and 1 - 2 deny a 4 card major in our system. Therefore responder can have and INV or a GF hand with a 4card major and a longer minor.

The basic structure should be something like that:

  • 2 is a Puppet to 2 and shows either a weak hand with or various INV hands or a choice of game hand with a 5card M (5332)
  • 2 is ART and GF, Opener shows his structure in the majors and can be asked for distribution then
  • 2oM (other major) isnt needed in a natural way (see above) and can be used for various special hands
  • 2NT isnt needed in a natural way either (responder can bid 2 - 2 - 2NT with INV BAL hands) and is a free bid too

We wonder how others organize these free bids and whether anyone plays a similiar structure after 1 - 1 - 1, too.....

Thx for all answers :-)
