1 (p) 1NT (p)
(p) X
Would it still be a penalty X?

Non-forcing, say 6-10. I'm thinking of a 0=3=5=5 or a 0=4=(4=5) opposite a 1 Spade opening

Is responding 1NT with a void considered a psyche?

Ben, I set the OP. You responded 5 to 4 with the North hand on the (previous) poll of the North hand, so you were always getting to the slam.

Tx Gordon. I intended the OP as being about the opening lead (I should have been clearer). In this case, you would have no info about the presence of other Jacks in Dummy.
