I Need Help With 1NT Openings
And then with 5=5=2=1, no game interest, partner prefers . Of course, you play reverse Flannery, so no problem.
I Need Help With 1NT Openings
Thanks, Michael. You summarized the choices well. (I might consider opening 1 even in 2/1.) I think that without the ACBL rule disallowing 1NT with a small singleton, I would consider that bid. Would some players consider that the least of the imperfect choices?

What does 3 diamonds tell you?
Sounds like a splinter to me. 2 gives room for partner to show a stopper. Your partner should have opened 2NT (and gone down 2) like I did.
Swiss teams - with hand records, bridgemates and less waiting time - it IS possible!
Of course, the 3rd place team would not appreciate being unable to move up in the last match. Since the first place team had a significant lead after five matches, a match between the 2nd & 3rd place teams (who hadn't played each other) would have been more interesting and ...
