I was also taught to open the suit below the singleton (or void). Opening the middle suit may be good enough; the important thing is not to open the suit above the shortness as my partner did with 0-4-4-5.

But aren't five-card major openings almost universal now except in Britain? We used to check "Avoid" on the "4-card major" part of the convention card; have most of the Avoiders converted to Neverers?

For a while my regular partner and I played Canapé (Blue Team club). That adds spice to some auctions, e.g. when Opener says "Double" at his 2nd turn to show his main suit. Anyone play Canapé these days?
