What is your opening bid and why?
I voted 1NT but not because I think the hand is 14.5 to 17.5, it seems fractionally better than that. But the cost of a 1NT response, or not getting a Spade lead vs NT, or the later blind defense, or just the positional advantage on any lead ...

In the Well: Eddie Wold
How much, if any, do you adjust your system or style toward more bashing and less disclosure when playing matchpoints?
Great sportsmanship at the senior trials
Ed - could you clarify whether that is a "should" or a "must" ?
Great sportsmanship at the senior trials
Since I can never be sure it was unintentional ( they are my eyes and I know where his hand is ) I treat it like UI. "why was I looking?"
