I usually open 1NT with 14-counts that have a 6322-hands (where 6 is a minor of course). I am not sure but I think I've had more bad results than good results doing this, the count may be 3-1 against me in the last year or so. I remember one silly 3NT-4 best.

I don't have enough data to come to any conclusions, and I certainly cannot claim that I know what is best. Usually when people say that they know without a doubt that one style is better than another, I think that they don't know what they are talking about. In clee's case I know that he (1) likes to make strong statements, (2) has played a lot of bridge in recent years, and (3) has been doing very well. I will certainly take his opinion seriously.
Please note: I am interested in boring, bog standard, 2/1.

After reading this thread, I will consider opening similar hands 1NT. At the table the notion never even crossed my mind, before posting here. That's all I could hope for - I don't know if Bridge even has "right" answers out of the context of skill level and system.
