XYZ technicality

Hi All,

This is my first post, but I had a question on how most experts play a certain treatment in xyz.

What is the expectation exactly for this auction?

1c-1h

1s-2c*

2d*-2h?

should this be a 6 card suit? should it be a good 5 card suit? What is opener supposed to do with:

AKxx

x

Kxx

Axxxx

Pass? 2nt? 3nt?

The way I currently play in with most of my partnerships, this 2h rebid can be a good 5 card suit and invitational values or it could be an 8 count with 6 hearts and 4 diamonds or something like that.

As a side note, a bunch of players that I play with have the agreement that:

1x-1y

1z-2c

2d-2nt= invitational to game and does not show 5 "y" and shows a fit with opener's "x" (so that opener can better judge whether to raise to 3nt)

whereas the auction:

1x-1y

1z-2nt denies a fit for opener's "x"

Anyway I am looking for suggestions on this and would like to hear what most would do with the 4135 14 count in the auction in question.
