Transfers After 1m-(1)

Does anybody play them?  How do you disentangle the hands with 4 hearts from those which are balanced (i.e. want to play 1NT) from those which have clubs?  For example, if

  • X = transfer to 1NT
  • 1NT = transfer to 2
  • 2 = transfer to 2
  • 2 = transfer to 2

You have 2 and 2 available for other fun stuff, but no way to look for a 4-4 heart fit unless you are willing to go to the 3 level.  You can give up the ability to play 1NT...

  • X = normal negative double
  • 1NT = transfer to 2
  • etc

Or you can give up on clubs...

  • X = normal negative double
  • 1NT = normal 1NT bid
  • 2 = transfer to 2
  • etc

Or do you just throw up your hands and play standard systems?
