Bids that Require Advance Preparation

When an opponent opens 1NT and we overcall 2D it shows 1 Major.

1C-2D shows either a strong hand with diamonds or a mixed raise in clubs.

General Bidding Style

5 card majors (1st, 2nd, 4th), strong notrump, 2/1 Game Force, fairly sound openings in 1st and 2nd. Pretty much standard american with gadgets.

Opening Leads AND Leads in the Middle of the Hand

3rd/low vs suits. 4th vs NT. same in middle of hand. A from AK against suit. K is power lead vs NT.

Defensive Signals

Standard Count and Attitude. Regular Smith vs NT. Generally attitude first then count.
