The Rough 2D

Description of 2D:

The Rough 2D is a pre-emptive opening showing:

Additionally, 2D shouldn't be opened on a 4441 shape, or with a void, or with two aces.

Suggested responses to 2D:

2H = pass/correct (asking opener to pass with 4 hearts, or correct to 2S with 4 spades);

2S = natural and non-constructive, although opener should raise to 3S with a non-minimum hand and 4 spades;

2NT = forcing enquiry (perhaps with rebids: min+H, min+S; max+H; max+S);

3C+ = natural and non-forcing.
