All expert players use splinter bids. When they come up (if you remember them) they are a valuable tool. Therefore, a response of 3NT to the splinter bid guarantees a double-stopper in the short suit (or possibly a five-card suit) and a disinterest in playing in any suit contract.

The splinter bid is a useful addition to any pairs’ bidding arsenal. It is a specialized type of raise that sometimes allows a partnership to bid a game or slam that might otherwise be missed.

In other words, a splinter bid by responder is a limiting bid, describing their shortness and allowing the opening bidder to take charge and evaluate the value of responder’s shortness. The 2NT* bid is forcing to at least game in opener's major suit. If the partnership also plays splinter bids, Jacoby 2NT* response tends to deny the shape for a splinter (i.e., no singleton or void).

The opener next tends to show shortness with a 3-level bid, common sequences follows: (Bid" " " " Suit"Length"" " Points. 1. While some partnerships splinter in all four suits as well as no trump, your life will be simpler if you limit your splinter bids to responses to major suits.
