Please could the experts help with a system for coping with weak 2 bids after a 1c (16+) opener

So 1c (2H) should responder pass with less than 7 points or is there a system where responder can compete with a stopper in the suit or without a stopper in their suit

Hi,

not playing a strong club system, but

#0 opener is expected to reopen with shortage
#1 neg. X should promise pos. values, ..., I would guess it should setup a gf seq.
which means 8+ HCP, a common req. for neg. X on the 2 level anyway
#2 2NT Lebensohl style, maybe slow showes / fast denies

With kind regards
Marlowe

IMO a simple clear treatment is ...

  • Pass= NAT 0-4 HCP OR stacked in opps suit.
  • Double = NEG 5-7 HCP .*
  • Cue = ART UCB 8+ HCP No 5 card suit
  • Suit = NAT 8+ HCP 5+ cards.*
  • 2NT = BAL 8+ HCP with stop.
  • Jumps = NAT 8+ HCP (Semi)solid suit.*

* Perhaps transfers would be better.

After two level interference, Rubensohl type methods are quite popular
