Playing old fashioned SA. 1 promises four spades, denies four hearts. North's auction denies a strong 1N opener, could still have three clubs in a 4-3-3-3 minimum opener. Would have bid 2N with 18+ and too weak for 2N (20+ to 22). Believe it or not, we all used to bid that way!

Well, that was the case when this came up. But lets modernize it a bit: 1 promises at least four clubs, and will not be 4=3 in the majors with a dead minimum. Opener would rebid 1NT with 4=3=3=3, would raise to 2 (a la Levinstein) with 4-3-2-4 or 4-3-1-5 and minimum high card values. With 4=1=4=4 opener might open either minor. Responder could have bid 3 natural over 1, but not 2 which would have been a strong JS.
