First in hand, Match-point Pairs, with nobody Vulnerable. Here is your hand AQ9654, 9, JT73, QJ. Do you open this hand 2, or do you choose 1?

I would open 2S, however, I tend to play relatively sound openings and stodgy preempts when playing standard methods.

I think its a question of partnership agreement.

It also helps to have methods over ones weak two bids. If I play a form of Ogust, then Im happy to open 2S. One should no give a lot of weight, in terms of hand evaluation, to a doubleton QJ.

Two spades. This is close, but without two quick tricks I'd favor the weak two.
