Bids that Require Advance Preparation

Strong Jump Shift Responses
1D - 2H is strong

Defense vs Precision or any other strong club:
Dbl of 1C opener is majors, overcall of 1NT over 1C is minors

General Bidding Style

Sound openings (usually). 1NT 15-17. Have opened 1NT with singleton a singleton A, K, or Q.
Always 5 card majors or longer.
3 card Minors. Open diamonds with equal number in clubs and diamonds.
We raise a response with 3 of the suit. (So the suit could be a 7 card fit)
May respond with a very weak hand. (One king or two queens)
Preempts are very light. No voids 1st or 2nd seat.
Overcall at the one level tend to be light.

Opening Leads AND Leads in the Middle of the Hand

VS Suit: 3rd/5th best
VS NT: 3rd/ 5th Best

We lead Aces from AK and Kings from KQ, etc. However, if we lead the K and then the A of a suit it was a doubleton. Same with the Q and then K and J and then Q.

Defensive Signals

Standard discards.

VS NT, primary signal is attitude.

VS suits, primary signal is count.

Suit preference with a singleton on the board when partner will probably win trick or when leaving a card that partner will trump as preference for what suit to return.

1st discard is standard. Usually only one discard has "meaning."
