Bids that Require Advance Preparation

The general approach is pretty much standard American 2/1 game forcing. With 4-4 in the minors we open 1D unless clubs are much better. Tend to open 1C with 5 clubs and 4 diamonds. We almost always bypass Walsh style unless game force. we open all 12 point hands usually and 11 with shape.

weak two's are pretty standard 1st and 2nd and can be 5 in 3rd.

We tend to open all 14+-17- one NT balanced except can have 6 card minor and hand with singleton honor.

Preempts are fairly standard except third position.

Over calls after partner is a passed hand can be very light,lead directing. Jump over calls can very in strength after passed partner.

General Bidding Style

We open all 12 point hands and some shapely 11's
over calls are pretty standard except after a passed partner.
we can be fairly light 3rd seat.
14,17,and,19 balanced will be upgraded if warranted.
