For some 6-9 pts is weak.
Yes, pts often don't give a fair valuation of a hand but what else is there losers?!

To me some of the possibilities are close.
I always get it wrong as the cards lie.

If you can't do it at the club what makes you think you can get them to do it at a tournament. There are several long time partnerships at clubs I frequent who never have a cc.

Im with John. Stating it could have short clubs does not preclude having long clubs.

a) so if you need partner to play a certain card to get extra trick you just expose your hand and claim.
Partner can now figure out what card to play as is not UI by your logic.
Sounds fishy to me!?

Dan Neill's Standard Modern Precision lists on pg 20
1-1-1-2-3 as 6+ GF. Presumably is same after 1 instead of 1.

I didn't mean to include 1/1/1 - 1NT which may bypass a 4-card major.
But the alert charts list 1N as non-alertable if it may or may not bypass a 4-card major. Go figure.
“Non-forcing 1NT responses that may or may not bypass four-card majors”

A lot of your questions are about bypassing 4-card majors to bid 1NT.
ACBL alert documentation is clear on this subject. 1NT does not require an alert if it is possible to bypass a 4-card major.

Weather you decide to alert anyways is your business.

If the player was world class that isn't how they would have made the claim.
