NS play 12-14 1N, and open 4-card majors. If opening a suit with 4m and 4M, and intending to rebid NT (15+) then we would open 1m before 1M, and bid suits up the line.

So here North knows that the one hand her partner DOESN'T have is 12-14 "balanced". [Balanced may of course include 5M or 6m, but is usually a 4432, 5332, or 4443 hand shape].

So South has EITHER

* an unbalanced hand (could be 10+ up to around 20ish which is not good enough for a game forcing 2C opener)

OR

* a hand that was intending rebidding NT to show 15+.

What action are you taking now as North?
