JACOBY 2 NO TRUMP: Another Approach

Aside locating a singleton in opener's hand what is the most important aspect of parner's hand?

Is it determining strength by point count? Minimum, Better than a minimum, Better still.

Why not discount or facilitate slam prospects immediately by showing key cards over 2NT.

3 Clubs shows two key cards. 3 Diamonds shows three key cards.  3 hearts shows four key cards. 3 Spades shows five key cards.

Four of the trump suit denies two or more key cards

Then if shortness matters, the next step over the key-card response is asking.

Opener names short suit. If shortness is in the asked suit, bids no trump.

With no shortness returns to trump suit.
