Crowhurst


When playing a wide ranging 1NT rebid by opener, say 12-16, a 2 bid by responder is Crowhurst, asking opener to further define the hand.  For example in the auction 1 - 1  - 1NT - 2 -


  2      -  Min (12-14) not 4 hearts and not

               3 spades

  2      -  Min (12-14) 4 hearts

  2      -  Min (12-14) 3 spades

  2NT  -  15-16


If the 2  bidder rebids 3  at this point it is to play.
