  • 2♦ : NF,  to play (5+c♦ ).Opener passes unless he  holds the stronger variant : 2NT


  • 2♥/ : NF, best choice between the 2 majors. s. If opener rebids 2NT , he holds the stronger variant.

 

  • 2NT : RF, 14+ hp,   interrogative . Opener has following options :


  • 3♣/♦: longer  ♥ than   /  longer  than  ♥ . Partner chooses the best major, if possible 4M , else on 3M in which case opener  only will enhance to game level with 9-10 hps (max).
  • 3♥/ :  equal length in majors  min/max  (<9 / 9-10hp)
  • 3NT : very unlikely, but the strong variant


If opener rebids 2NT, showing the strong balanced hand, Niemeyer can be started (3) when holding at least a 3card M. Indeed, the opener possibly holds a 5 card major.


A partner with 8+hps may show slem ambition , especially when holding a 5+ card.
