3rd bid by opener

As the 3rd bid by opener following 2/1 sequences when fit is given at the 2nd level:

• 1 2 2 2 ??
• 1 2 2 2 ??
• 1 2 2 2 ??
• 1 2 2 2 ??

Is it better to give information of a 6th card trump or a 5th card side-suit, not knowing where singleton is, thus potentially leading to the useless cuebid of the king in the singleton. This would look like below:

Exemple: 1 2 2 2 ??

• 2N = 5242
• 3 = 5143
• 3 = 5152, 5251 or 6151
• 3 = 5341
• 3 = 6241 or 6142
• 4 = Void
• 4 = Void

Or have the agreement of bidding the cheapest available suit to guarantee a singleton in the highest remaining suit, not knowing what shape the opener is. This would look like below:

Exemple: 1 2 2 2 ??

• 2N = 5242
• 3 = Any hands with 2-3 cards in , thus singleton in
• 3 = 5251 or 6151
• 3 = 5341
• 3 = 6241
• 4 = Void
• 4 = Void
6th card trump or a 5th card side-suit, regardless of where the singleton is
Confirm where the singleton is
