New Monaco Pair
The issue isn't if VL can win in Italy; it's if Zimmerman can win with a team from Switzerland.
Do YOU play any of the "Worst Conventions?"
You ought to allow us to choose more than one. I've played Gerber, double negative, and stolen bids at times.
The Worst Convention Ever
I've had the experience of asking about "leads and signals" and being told "Standard". But several times I've discovered that a pair was playing Reverse Watusi discards. So now I ask about discards also.

Prealert? Nothing? Something else?
You can still have a rebidding problem after 1S-1N, especially if you don't play Gazzili. And what if RHO overcalls?
Contested Claim
@Tom: If declarer has only one trump, and it's high, it is "extremely common" to play it as part of a claim. The "definite objective" here would be to claim.
