I think this is similar to action after a one-level opening in that Pass here just says “no preference.” It is not a desire to defend 2XX'ed

I know my pass isn't forcing, but partner will know I'm trying to stop him with my double.

4. How can you bid anything less. Opposite a doubleton and the Queen, you could be claiming.

I transfer and if partner just takes the transfer, I'll bid 3NT. if he pulls to 4Hs, I'll bid 5H's..

A version of Snapdragon allows for advancer to X to show 4 hearts in this exact sequence.

Every time we open 1C in a standard natural system, we have from 3 to 7-8 clubs and 12 to 21 points. What's new? This range has always existed in standard bidding playing 5-card majors.

There are many hands that can make game opposite almost nothing. That doesn't justify opening a strong 2C. You STILL must describe your hand to partner in a manner in which he can bid logically. For instance AKxxxx, AQJxxx, -, x. Yet we don't open a strong 2C.
In the actual Problem hand, if you open 2C and partner jumps to 3Ds, now what? 3NT would show 22+ with at least 2-card support! You don't have that hand.

This is easy, nothing is going to much. I pass and lead Ace and club.
