Bids that Require Advance Preparation

1H - 1S is like a forcing NT with any number of spades, then transfer rebids by opener.
1H-1N is GF relay
1H-2C is 5+S constructive to invitational

1S-2C is GF Relay
1S-2D is 5+H constructive to invitational
1S-3C is 6+H hearts wide ranging

General Bidding Style

Precision when NV and in fourth seat any vul, open all 10s and possibly upgradable 9 in 1-2 not vul
Natural when Vul except fourth seat

14-16 NT 1/2 NV, 15-17 1/2 Vul and 4th seat any vul
12-16 NT 3rd NV. 1NT can be upgraded and off shaped for all ranges except 12-16 range can't be upgraded

Third seat NV 2D is like a precision 2C but for D
third seat nv 1D is 3+ and may have longer clubs since 1c is strong and art and frequent 4 card majors.

Overcalls white can be very light. Third seat white actions can be wide ranging.

Opening Leads AND Leads in the Middle of the Hand

Against suits, 3/5 + Rusinow, 2/4 through declarer
Against NT, 4th best except 3/5 in partner's suit, 2/4 through declarer, Rusinow

Rusinow exceptions:
Not on if preemptor leads a different suit
Not in partner's shown suit, including implied suits ie (1S)-X, partner has "shown" oM.
Not on in dummy's known suit.
Not on in declarers suit
