Highest Opening Bid You've Ever Made or Witnessed?

Highest Opening Bid You've Ever Made or Witnessed?
Highest opening bid and highest opening call were at the same tournament, Daytona Beach '99. Since I picked up AKQxx A AKQxxxxx and bid 7 over the 1 opening (down one, lose 14), for the sake of consistency, when I picked up AKQJx, A, AKQxxx, x I felt ...

Fitting Card
More likely but not set in stone. And they don’t always go down.
Fitting Card
