Highest Opening Bid You've Ever Made or Witnessed?

This is purely just one of those "just for fun" polls.  But in any case, I was reading Larry Cohen's book titled My Favorite 52 in which he recounts that as a very young player in the early 1980's, he once picked up a freakish hand on which he opened 5.

So this led me to create a BW poll: What is the highest opening bid you have ever made or witnessed?  I say "made or witnessed" because if you've seen someone open with a bid higher than one you have ever made yourself, then count that bid rather than the highest you have ever gone.

I also figured this might lead to some fun stories.

As for me, the highest opening bid I have ever made or witnessed during my one year of playing is "just" 5 and it was made by yours truly.  And my guess is that 5 will be a popular answer but just am curious.

4 or something even lower
