Opener's Rebid with a Medium Hand after a 1-level response


quiz-pic

You've opened 1-of-a-suit but don't have a minimum (about 12-14), but neither do you have a maximum (about 18-20). You have to choose a rebid. It won't be in notrump (you would have opened 1NT). So, your possibilities are: 1) Jump rebid your suit (6+ card suit, roughly 15-18 in playing strength) 2) Jump raise your partner (4-card support, roughly 15-18 in playing strength) 3) Bid a new suit (very wide range). For 1D-1S-2C you could have a dead minimum, but could have up to about 17 or 18 (because 1D-1S-3C would be GF) . Note: "Bid a new suit" in #3 does not refer to a jump shift (GF) or a reverse (forcing one round).
