Alje's Friday Feedback

Those unfortunate to be within earshot already know I am a strong advocate of opening 1NT with almost any hand that has 13 cards and 15-17 HCP. Shape? 5-4-2-2 is fine, as is 2-2-3-6. Even 1-4-4-4 will do on occasion. Stoppers? That’s what partners are for. All of this to say that I was dismayed to see that not a single N/S pair got to the easy 3NT game on Board 30 on Friday. Even stopping in 1NT or 2NT would have earned an above average result. The problem, it appears, is that no North was comfortable opening 1NT with their slightly off-shape 16 HCP hand. If they had, South would either pass or invite to game. Looking at a possible 6 tricks in clubs, North would clearly accept any invitation. For those who opened 1♣, the question is: what do you rebid when partner responds at the 1-level? 2♣ is an underbid and 3♣ is an overbid. 2NT is weird, considering you didn’t feel the hand was worth even 1NT initially. As is so often the case, opening these kinds of hands 1NT describes your hand in one bid and avoids all sorts of messy rebid problems. It is also more difficult for East to overcall after a 1NT opening bid than a 1♣ opening bid. You’ve heard it before but it bears repeating – always look for a reason to open 1NT, never a reason to not open 1NT.
