White vs. red, IMPs, first seat, you hold:

J85
Void
AXX
AKJT864

Your methods allow you to open this with 2, showing 10-15 points with 6+ clubs and specifically denying 4.

Would you open 2 or 5 (the only two sensible choices IMO)?

Would your choice be different depending on the form of scoring?

2. Opening 5 is a high variance action that I would only consider if my opponents so outclassed me that we had no other way to win other than creating random high level guesses - and even then I'd open 2.

Given your 2 choices 2. But knowing your system allows aggressive 1 upgrades I am surprised you do not consider this a possibility too.

2. 5 is completely random.
