Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Light Opening?
Mike, don’t most hands play about a king worse than their actual point count unless you find a fit? Eg 5521 hands are great - but if there’s no fit, they don’t play well at all.
Nursery Rhymes
Maybe change 2nd line to: And West led a low Heart
Light Opening?
I believe it best to play a system where this is an opening bid. If this is technically not an opening in your system, and you decide to open anyway, apologise to your partner if it goes wrong, but then suggest you start including such hands.
Nursery Rhymes
Director Jack Horner Got up from his corner To rule on another bad claim. “I’m ruling one down” He said with a frown “The rules are the rules. What a shame”

What Might a “virtual” NABC look like?
I’ve had a similar idea for an anonymised individual. I would be interested to see how many people psych when it is genuinely the case that their partner has no more reason to expect it than the opponents!
Escape from 1NT?
Always transfer and don’t worry about the occasional times when passing would be better.
