Sanity check. The xs are small. The field is bad. Your opponents are (ostensibly) playing SAYC.

Partner has denied 10-12 balanced, basically all 11 counts with a five-card major, and any good 10 count with a five-card major.

If you think this is a clear opener, what is the smallest change that would cause you to pass? If you replace the heart J with, say, the heart T, does that do it?

If you think this is a clear pass, what is the smallest change that would induce you to open the hand? Would you open this hand playing a less aggressive style?

If you think this is borderline, good for you - you wouldn't have spent the last ten minutes arguing with partner... :)
