Crowdsourcing a suggested defense

I was hoping to get some help crowdsourcing suggested defenses to a couple opening bids. Who knows, maybe this august body can come up with an approach that the C+C committee will accept.

The first bid is a MOSCITO style transfer opening bid.

A 1 opening shows ~9 – 14 HCP, promises 4+ Hearts (could have a longer minor) and denies a balanced hand with 11+ - 12 HCP.

The following hands represent minimum strength 1D openings.

In response to a 1 opening,

Pass shows ~ 0-7 HCP

1 is a game invite+ relay

1NT is natural and non forcing

2/1 is natural NF

2 shows a limit raise+ in support of Hearts

Jump shifts are fit showing

The 1 opening is similar, showing 4+ Spades. The most significant difference is that 1H denies a balanced 11+ - 12 HCP, however, could have 13-14 balanced.

 

Thoughts from the peanut gallery?
