BBO IMP Pairs. Spot cards are accurate.
Playing 2/1 with 4-suit transfers with preacceptance.
1NT was 14++ to 17. Yes, it is acknowledged that some of you might consider this hand to be too good for 1NT (KNR = 18.35, DK = 18, Bergen = 18), but the agreement is currently to open this hand with 1NT.
2 shows s (not either s and/or range ask)
The stronger of the two possible responses by the 1NT bidder (or the preacceptance) is 2NT
The weaker of the two possible rebids by the 1NT bidder is 3

This poll comes with a second question. Please be kind enough to answer.
What is the minimum holding required in partner's suit required to preaccept the transfer? Can it be done on a very good maximum NT, one that likely would accept an invite such as on the sequence 1NT - 3m invitational, even with xx in oartner's suit? with xxx? Jxx? Txx?

Please bid 7NT if you would have upgraded this hand and then rebid 2N or something showing the same range, depending on partner's initial response. Even if you select 7N, kindly respond to the 2nd part of the question r.e. minimum holding in partner's suit required to preaccept.
TIA
