Stayman – Response to 2

I found a new response today for when your partner responds 2 to your Stayman.

If you have a 5-4 split in a major, respond with the 5-card suit.  This will communicate to your partner that you can carry the contract in your hand if they have 3 cards in that suit.  It also leaves room to continue with the traditional 2NT bid.
