Another consideration – who is playing better today?

Form of scoring, state of the event can enter into the decision as well.

I jumped at the chance to play a KO match against Moses Ma et al. Set traps* in the bidding, they always found the right lead. The most egregious was not leading partner's (possibly canape) overcalled suit, not leading their own QJT9x, no, finding a lead from xx against 3NT, catching partner's KQJTx.

*in particular, bidding NT without regard to having a stopper in RHO's overcall.

T.R.S. I imagine.

Invented something somewhat similar, basic idea was that either opened 1 (SAF, 16+) or opened as if responding to a strong 1, unless 12-15 (which passed).

“Talking about that 2♦ can be passed I like to know that partner will never pass in pass-out position.”

And probably prefer that the opponents not know that, else they have even more reason to pass 2.

“3♠ can then show a control or shortage.”

Not entirely a splinter…

“…since opening 2♦ is a jump, you are mandated to take at least 10 seconds whether you hold the strong or weak option.”

Really?

“Pass followed by 4m usually work as well or better.”

Maybe, if given a second chance…

Nor me. Upon further consideration and after reading comments to date, nope, still doesn't occur.

Ruff a …high. Throw South in with the third round of s whatever* he does on that ruff.

EditAdd: well, if he overruffs and returns the , no throw-in, just the 9 tricks. Likewise if he underruffs.

That would be a reason. Another reason is that dummy should not direct play.

I see no substantive reason for dummy to play a card before it is called for…
