** A Reverse is bidding a lower ranking suit then 
       rebidding a higher ranking suit. Example: you open 
      1D and partner responds 1 No Trump. 
      If  you rebid 2 S, then you made a  Reverse. (You 
      reversed the natural  bidding order.)  Note: the 
      Reverse rebid must be at the two level or higher.


 

  REBID MAJOR
A bid of one of a Major shows a five card suit. A rebid should show something new. No sense giving your partner information he already has. Therefore a rebid of the Major shows at least a six card suit.  (Could be a seven
or eight carder.)  A rebid at the 2 level  is a MIN opener; at the 3 level a MED opener; and at the 4 level a MAX opener (a seven card suit or a very good six).
