We Need a Better Mousetrap

Our standards for bidding a 2/1 in competition are pretty low. We could have an 9 count with a good six card suit. It's usually no problem unless the opener has an exceptional hand.

For example in the auction 1 (1) 2 - (p) -

Opener holds KQx, x, AKQTxx, AJx

In our current methods 2NT, 3 and 3 are non forcing. Of course 2 creates a game force but what is opener to do with this hand over responders 3? It does create some awkward problems when opener has a very strong hand.

Please contribute your suggestions for followups to 2/1 in competition.
