Is SNAP Mid-Chart+

An example(s):

 

Pass-Pass-1m-Pass-1NT (alerted as 1M, length unknown, at least semi-balanced, 9-12 Hcpts).

similarly,

Pass-Pass-1m-Pass-1H (alerted, less than 9 HCpts).

Is this mid-chart and above only?

Any insight or experience with this convention?

A more complete description follows:

------------

Strong Notrump After Passing (SNAP) is a contract bridge bidding convention originated by Jeremy Flint and Tony Priday [1] and is a one notrump bid by a passed hand in response to a one-level opening by his partner. It shows a relatively balanced hand with 9-12 high card points (HCP) and no five-card major that could have been bid at the one-level. The convention is intended to keep the contract at a low level when opener has a light or minimum hand. Accordingly, its application is more suited to part-score competitive bidding in matchpoint scoring.When using SNAP, a 2NT response shows a balanced limit jump raise in opener's suit.Limitations[edit]Responding hands containing 6-8 points are problematic, especially if partner opens in spades. Some 6 point hands are passed and some 8 point hands are bid at the two-level.See also[edit]Drury conventionReferences[edit]^ Francis, Henry G., Editor-in-Chief; Truscott, Alan F., Executive Editor; Frey, Richard L., Editor Emeritus; Hayward, Diane, Editor, Fourth Edition (1984).
