Question for those who know the ACBL rules:
Canape usually needs Pre-alerting. I always do: "May bid a shorter Major before any longer suit".
Which method is best and why?
UDA, Lavinthal Discard 1st discard always, Attitude 1st trick or when a new suit is lead but not after being asked for, Suit Preference when not interested, discarding, or following w/no chance of winning, never Count, Top of xxx, low from xx (pre-alert), the rest needs discussing or sussing ...
The Worst Convention Ever
2C strong, artificial, forcing
Bid these hands in a 2/1 context
1-2 (4-way) 2-2 (3) 3-3 (cue) 3N (Non-serious)-4 (s, cue) 4 (cue)-4N (1430 for s) 5 (2/no Q)-5 signoff

Psyches aren't always successful. It's a percentage play.
