Would you order or pass?

Order & discard voiding clubs right?

Right +1 and 2 suited. Or, you can look at it from a points standpoint as 3.25.

Absolutely R+1 is the edge call per OE. R+1 and 2 suited is 3 factors, 3 klicks, better than an edge (minimal order) hand. But on the flip side, you will lose 1 out of 5 or 1 out of 6 hands.

I’m curious about 3.25 points though. Here is my analysis:
0.50 R1 S4
1.00 Js (R)
0.25 9s
0.25 Bower + 1
0.25 Green Tripleton Ace (Green Ace .75 minus 2 same suit cards x 0.25 =0.25)
0.75 2 Suited, 2 Voids
3.00 vs. 2.00 min order. So order. You are close. Where do we disagree?
