A Comprehensive System of Responses to 1NT
I do something very similar, but invert the meaning of the 4 and 4 bids. It allows more room to show a control. Also, over the 3OM hidden splinter, we use the next step to ask.
BW 2/1: Opener's "High Reverse"
Agreed, Chris. Although written several years ago, the link below are some of Justin Lall's thoughts on opener's "high reverse." He states, "If you bid at the 3 level, you are never going to be able to make a fully shape showing bid next. There is not enough ...

Bob Okker's bidding problem: QT976543 J K6 AQ
If I were going to trot out the "If I were playing with a beginner" caveat, then I probably just blast 4. If you bid 4 opposite your golfer friend (aka beginner) you have every right to be left there. But the OP--posted to Bridgewinners--assumes a certain degree ...

Bob Okker's bidding problem: QT976543 J K6 AQ

(P) - 1NT - (2) - 3 (X) - 4 - (4) - All pass East worth a GF Stayman 3. Just. South doubles, making some noise. West, happy to find the fit bids game. North, considers the vulnerability, bids game.
Todd Holes's bidding problem: AQ J87654 J9 J74
Your statement implies that I was the 2 bidder. Nowhere was that stated. Someone else was the lunatic.
