I like CRASH a lot over precision club openers, but I do not EVER double 1C. Big Club players like it when you double because it gives their partner extra ways to define their hand. In CRASH I use 1D, 1H, 1S as the steps over 1C and 1H, 1S, 1N over 1C-P-1D. For one suiters we use transfer jumps in direct seat (e.g., 1C-2D shows hearts). I know a lot of people like to keep the major suit bids at the one level natural, but well, you cannot have everything.

Once your partner bids CRASH, you now bid the 'best of your worst'. In the example Larry gives in his article, responder must be at least 4-4 in diamonds and a major and is ready to play at the 3-level either way.
