There are two strong opinons on opening this hand:

One is 2NT and the other is 1  (or 1 ) with a 2  rebid.  I can sympathize with the 2NT opening as it seems modern bridge is quite open to NT with a singleton.  However, if you are of the other opinion, that a Strong Jump Shift does not promise a specific shape, and you do open 1 and responder bids 1  ,  and you agree with a 2 rebid by opener (showing 19-21 HCP or a little less with a very strong 6-5 shape hand), then what should responder's second bid be with the hand:

Please only answer if you agree with the partnership style of opening with a minor as that is what our partnership has agreed and we want opinions based on that sequence.  Not saying 2N opening is wrong, just not our style...
