C/1MX: Cappelletti over 1 of a Major X (doubled)
Thank you Frances. This is somewhat different from others who use XX as power showing.
C/1MX: Cappelletti over 1 of a Major X (doubled)
@Richard, so transfers over all take out doubles of opening bids?
C/1MX: Cappelletti over 1 of a Major X (doubled)
I'm not sure XX as value showing is all that useful since advancer will bid anyway. Would it be be better to use XX as the transfer to NT over 1 (X) and to spades over 1 (X) so you show a natural spade but still keep ...
C/1MX: Cappelletti over 1 of a Major X (doubled)
@Janusz the first reference suggests using the transfer raise followed by a re-raise by responder to show a 3 card limit raise. You lose this option if you invert the meaning of the constructive transfer raise with the weak simple raise.

I did not think of all options, but I would use answer 3 to cover this, i.e. it was not worth it because other methods were superior. Edit: modified option 3 to cover this case. What are those other methods, please?
Major suit raises
"The standard system suggests that we make a single raise with about 8-10 (for some players probably 6-9)" That's backwards. Most make a single raise with 6-9, even 5. With any decent 10 you are in the realm of an invitational raise, especially with 4 card support.
C/1MX: Cappelletti over 1 of a Major X (doubled)
Isn't that what it says above? 1NT: Transfer to clubs, usually showing sufficient values to compete with a club suit and sometimes also a fit for opener’s major; or showing tolerance (usually a doubleton honor) for opener’s major and a desire to compete to exactly the two ...
C/1MX: Cappelletti over 1 of a Major X (doubled)
So effectively, a (reverse) Drury 2C? Do you do the same with a 4LR?
C/1MX: Cappelletti over 1 of a Major X (doubled)
That's reasonable. Hard to think of all the options! What do you play instead of C/1MX?

Had posted previously in a different format that only allowed one answer. Corrected.
