Bids that Require Advance Preparation

After an opponent's 1C or 1D opening, 2H shows both majors, NF. Direct cuebids of an opponent's
1 of a minor are natural. We play Roman cuebids of an opponent's major opening. 2D over an opponent's 1NT opening may show an unspecified major.

General Bidding Style

Fairly standard bidding style. 3rd seat openings may be simply lead-directing. NV vs. VUL opening preempts may be a wide range.

Opening Leads AND Leads in the Middle of the Hand

3rd and 5th vs. suits. Attitude vs. NT. Rusinow vs. NT.

Defensive Signals

Standard count and attitude. Upside down attitude discards only. Attitude take preference in most cases. We signal only when we feel it helps partner.
