For me, 1 is clearcut for the reasons previously cited. Make the Q the Q and it's a closer decision, but I'd still try 1--when in doubt, show your suit. As it has been said before, the 1 opener is in itself a losing bid--has a negative expectation. The virtue of club systems is the limited opening bids--big winners.

In first seat, playing Precision you hold: A Q 10 A Q 10 9 7 5 K 9 8 7.
IMO 1 = 10, 1 = 8. Rule of at least 25 and fewer than 5 losers.

To come back to this:

I don't really play precision, and as a mostly natural bidder am quite sympathetic to the arguments that showing a suit first is good so we should do so on this hand. But if it's really that good, why don't we make 1 17+ and have very slightly less limited openings in our big club system?

And I say reverse that. This hand is ideal for the Precision jump bid - I will open that 1 and rebid that 3 all day long!

There used to be a game in "Whose line is it anyway?" where all sentences had to end as a question. Wouldn't it be fun to reply to a question with an associated question?

Would that not hijack the thread?

Back to the OP, I think this hand is an obvious 1D opener playing bog standard precision and an obvious 1C opening in Meckwell precision.

What's the distinction you're making? Do you mean in Meckwell precision you open lighter, so 1 should also be lighter?

Bonus points for the double-obvious!

In essence yes. Meckwell precision has alot more upgrading than traditional precision so it is normal to open alot of good 15 counts with 1C. Traditional precision was much more steadfast about 1C being a 'power' opening with very few 15 counts being upgraded.

Meckwell may or may not have chosen correctly; but where and when to draw the line is the main issue under discussion.

Meckwell primairily upgrade their non-opening hands to an opening bid, they don't change their 1 behaviour.
