-- Most players open, routinely.

You must play in pretty aggressive clubs. I can't imagine many LOLs even thinking of opening that hand.

Maybe if you said "most expert players" I would believe you.

Barmar is right. I did say "in my experience". IMO, in 3rd seat, most experts would open that hand -- as would most Glasgow club players. When you hold 6 HCP in 3rd seat, however, the auction rarely starts with 2 passes.

Glasgow is a lively city blessed with an anarchic spirit.
In my club, my partner and I are the only ones who would even contemplate opening that hand and unfortunately I have TD credibility to protect B-)

As a Bridge nobody, occasionally being concerned over slightly exagerrating the strength of my hand, and still grappling with the finer points of the rules, I am curious how routinely opening that hand (no matter how rare) does not consitutute something that should be on a convention card :)
