Alerting ... how much information is too much information?
A short opening is announceable. An artifical opening is alertable. A system more rare than a strong opening may be prealertable, though the ACBL assumes you are prepared for strong openings.

Psyches - and fielding them
That's the usual rationale of the secret society of psychers. "I bid 3NT with Jx 9xx xxxx Kxxx after partner opened 3 because I sincerely hope to play in 3NT doubled, not because I'm trying to create a false impression of my hand strength or muddy the ...
