Hi Pete – I have only just discovered your website (I am a bit slow nowadays), and I am slowly going through some of your earlier posts. I notice that you open 1NT with a 5 card major suit. Is this because you are playing the robots’ card, or do you normally play this way. I always open 1M if I have a 5 carder. Is there a good reason to open 1NT with a 5 card major, and when is it a good time to open 1M rather than 1NT.
I currently live in God’s waiting room – aka Bribie Island
Many thanks for your time
Hi Mick, I personally will always open 1NT with a 5 card major unless I have a 5422 shape. It is slightly worse opening it with 5S compared to 5H but I still keep opening 1NT anyway.
