a) so if you need partner to play a certain card to get extra trick you just expose your hand and claim.
Partner can now figure out what card to play as is not UI by your logic.
Sounds fishy to me!?

Dan Neill's Standard Modern Precision lists on pg 20
1-1-1-2-3 as 6+ GF. Presumably is same after 1 instead of 1.

I didn't mean to include 1/1/1 - 1NT which may bypass a 4-card major.
But the alert charts list 1N as non-alertable if it may or may not bypass a 4-card major. Go figure.
“Non-forcing 1NT responses that may or may not bypass four-card majors”

A lot of your questions are about bypassing 4-card majors to bid 1NT.
ACBL alert documentation is clear on this subject. 1NT does not require an alert if it is possible to bypass a 4-card major.

Weather you decide to alert anyways is your business.

If the player was world class that isn't how they would have made the claim.

Basic+ “1. Any opening bid in a suit which is Natural, as long as it shows at least Near-Average Strength”
Easily meets rule of 17 so OK for Basic+

As opposed to wrong-siding when opener likes your minor.

Surely with only 3 you have a better bid than 2 even if it is pass.

I don't see how 1N-2M natural to play is alertable by this proposed method.
Is natural the only extra information is that you have less than 9 hcp or so.

Having a limit on hcp shouldn't cause an alert, look at opening bids they are limited to 21 or 15 in Precision which doesn't cause an alert.

For a natural 2M bid to be forcing would be unexpected.

Brett- you method looks ok in Basic+ also. And think good for all 4 charts.
Basic+ - responses and rebids
“1. Any Natural response” - so natural non-forcing 2/1 OK
same with 2M as a 3-card limit raise.
“6. Any 1NT response to an opening bid of 1H or 1S.”
So 1N unlimited OK.

For Basic I think is ok too.
“5. 1NT cannot guarantee an Invitational or stronger hand.”
as long as weaker hands are possible with 1NT ok to have GF hands.
