2/1: Fast Arrival in NT?

Announced bids vs. Alerted bids
Cue bids occur with lots of other meanings besides Michaels: western cues asking for stoppers, or showing a limit raise after an overcall. It's not about whether there's a standard meaning, it's about whether the opps know that the bid isn't a natural offer to play ...
