What does responder bid with the invitational club hand over 3♦? It seems like you end up too high here if you can bid 2♠ with an invitational hand with clubs.
Start with Stayman followed by a 2NT bid.
You wont show clubs with inv. values, but you could not do this before without MSS,
you would have to bid 2NT as well, so have add. options, but the add. option dont
The given structure implies, that Stayman has to be bid with all invitational hands,
regardless, if they have a 4 card major or not.
This has also some implications to Stayman Sequences, e.g.
1NT - 2C
2H - 2S
2S showes only 4 cards, catering for opener being 4-4 in the majors, there may be
other imlications as well.
Also the structure seems to be incomplete, since single suited gf minor hands are missing.
and it may well be, that 2C followed by 3C / 3D showes the gf hand with minors, or
those hands get to be shown via the jump response to 3m.
And 2C followed by 3C / 3D, showes what ever.
With kind regards
