Bids that Require Advance Preparation

All of our 2/1 calls after a major opening are artificial:
1.) All of our game forces start with 2C which relays opener
2.) A raise to 1 under our major shows a 3 card limit raise
3.) 1S (p) 2D shows 5+ hearts invitational or 6 hearts weak to invite

Our 2D opener is 3 suited with 0-1 diamond and 4-3 or 4-4 majors

Over our short 1D opener we play 2H/2S as 5 spades and 4-5 hearts weak/invite

After 1M-2C-(interference)
* DBL/RDBL = penalty
* other bids ignore DBL
* after overcall, bids are natural
