Very little discussion

2 guaranteed 6+...but, do you prefer to show the 6th at once or, should partner's 5+ card suit take priority and should opener's rebid be 3?

Also, responder was 2=5=2=4. The way the bidding is shown, should responder rebid 3 or show the 4 card suit? :blink:

Just to back up for a second, I play 2s promises 6+ but most on this forum do not!

On this example I prefer to rebid 2s(6) rather than 3h, that is where my hcp are.

As for responder's rebid, again I would bid where I live between 3c or 3s. If very close then 3s.

With all of that said on many hands it is often best to pattern out if there is room, if.

I don't play 2 as showing 6, but if I did, this would be my choice. You have plenty of room to show 3 card heart support when partner bids 2NT or 3m. Show your shape when you can.
