1a.
How many points does opener have? >12+ points<

1b. How many diamonds does opener have?
>4 diamonds<

1c. How many clubs does opener have? >5 clubs<

1d. What possible distributions does opener
have? >Opener must have 4 diamonds and 5 clubs with the remaining 4
cards in the majors. With 6+ clubs
opener would re-bid clubs before showing the diamond suit. If opener was 5-5 in diamonds and clubs,
opener would open 1 diamond rather than 1 club. Furthermore, opener must have at least
one card in each major. Otherwise,
opener would have either 4 spades or 4 hearts with a void in the other major
and would bid the major before bidding 2 diamonds. Therefore, opener's distribution must be
either 1-3-4-5, 3-1-4-5, or 2-2-4-5.<
