So they made a mistake. Now look what happens if Benoit bids 4: responder doubles (what else?), opener passes (what else?).

I always read what you write. I never said they were identical situations. However, I am talking about the OP, not a hypothetic hand.

Perhaps his idea was to make both opponents think his partner was short in clubs.

Bidding 4 might also reach that goal. Bidding 2 might induce partner to make a fatal club lead.

One of the opponents with short spades may have realized he had short spades.

3. For what I know declarer may have his 9 (1+3+3+2) tricks already. Let's cash out.

Leading back our 3 would also suggest a doubleton spade…

Opener can't have 3 clubs because that would leave him with 4333 distribution, excluded by the premises.

What do you do with a weak 54 over 1?

1NT is minimum, misfit. Over 1, that is probably 3154 but I can picture 3163 too with weak s. Over 1 it is a 4-card club or hearts suit. So practically as natural as can be.
I plan to play 2 Gazzilli where the weak variant is at least 55 in the minors (otherwise 1NT).

I am going to make proposals to one of my partners and I would like to go slowly.

They don't have a code, they are innocent.

No doubt but my goal is to make a comparison with traditional support rebids.

Thanks for your thoughts. I am not worried about declaring Moysians more than I have been worried up to this time because the hands on which I raise are the same on which I would raise with the current practice.

Playing transfer responses you will always bid your major first if you have a weak hand.
Anyway, 1M as a final contract after 1-1-1M? Has it ever happened in your practice?

It's a disgrace that this thread has been tainted with malevolence.

4m is a limited bid with 4-5 losers. Sometimes partner contributes a couple of losers of his own…
Even 4m might be too high. Punish partner by forcing him to 5m? Really?
Stronger 2-suiters shall start with a double. If you are strong enough for the 5 level you won't mind if the opponents compete to 4.

Those assigning blame to South would surely take out 3NTx to 4, only to find partner with AKx, K10x, QJx, xxxx or something similar.

I agree but the values in diamonds part. How would he bid the same hand with weak diamonds?
