One use for 1m-2NT is your weakest m raise. Then 1m-3m is semi-constructive (ie good 5 to medium 9). I have found this distinction to be very useful.

Without that [...] I don't see any way to make a response structure that works.

Very generous on your part to share your universal wisdom with us mortals.

Can you please say what the continuations after the criss cross are and what 1m-2nt is in that system (and any other details)? Quite like the idea and would like to include it in our inverted minor system. Cheers


After those criss-cross responses, 2nt (if available) and 3m are to play. Everything else is forcing to game and tends to show stopper. Just a normal structure after a minor raise.

BTW I like to play 1m-3m as very weak (warns opener not to bid 3nt with 18-19) and use the criss-cross bids to show about 7-9 with 5cd-support.

1m-2m shows 10+, opener bids 2nt or 3m with a min or shows a stopper with 14 (gd 13) or more. Responder can then try to sign-off with 2nt or 3m, everything else forces to game.

1m-2nt would be natural.

All these responses deny a 4cd major (else respond 1M).

Not quite complicated, but you may add splinter rebids or other gadgets if you so please.
