Opening bid #2

Continuing Matos' idea (Hi Matos!), here's a hand I feel like I get dealt a lot:

♠ 9
♥ K Q 5
♦ A K Q 5
♣ Q 8 7 4 2

How do you bid this one? And what do you rebid when your partner shows spade strength?

I'd open 1C. It's only 12 HCP but the singleton gives you 14 and sometimes counting it is precisely what is called for. If partner responds 1S, say 1NT. If partner jumps to 2S after your opening bid, you can say 2NT with very little to worry about, since they're indicating a hand of equal or greater strength to yours. (A 1C opener indicates minimum opening points most of the time anyway, doesn't it? That's the way I typically hear it, at least.)

It's only 12 HCP? Are you playing aces low?
