Partner opened 2NT

Partner has opened a hand which is either balanced, or more or less balanced subject to a set of possible constraints agreed by the partnership.

The range will also be closely defined.  There are several possibilities.

At an early stage you will probably choose a range of 20-22 in line with the majority of club players.

As you proceed you may well adopt a two-point range such as 21-22.

All of the more advanced methods in the following are written in the context of this range, although the methods are readily adjusted to fit any other agreed range.
