Teams.

2NT 20-21 balanced,

3 intending to show something in the minors,

3NT sorta a default response,

4 shows 1-suiter, slammish,

4 is a cue showing a 1st or 2nd round control in diamonds and interest in going for slam, so clubs are "agreed" as a trump suit.

  

I've set the poll up so people can give their opinion as to what pass, XX, and bids all mean here (4 choices for each). If you can't adequately describe your preferred methods using the choices, an extra box is selectable to say that you have extra preferred agreements (and I appreciate elaboration in the comments.)

 

Please assume that by "bid" I'm not too worried about the implication of the specific bid but rather what implication bidding has on information in the diamond suit.

 

I guess part of my question here is that using XX as a 1st round control seems to have less utility on this auction than on others, but it may not be necessary to have it mean anything else.

 

Thanks for your input!
