Bids that Require Advance Preparation

We do not play anything not GCC that would need advance preparation

General Bidding Style

We play 2/1. Open all 12 counts and some 11 counts (mostly in 3 or 4th seat). When opening a major suit we always have 5+ and a minor 3+. 15-17 1nt range. 20-21 2nt range. Gambling 3nt. We tend to overcall lightly and frequently.

Opening Leads AND Leads in the Middle of the Hand

Opening leads: top of touching honors, high from doubletons, fourth best from suits. We lead K for AK tight.
Middle of hand: low lead encourages, high lead discourages.

Defensive Signals

Upside down count and attitude. When opening lead we respond with attitude. Our first discard is attitude. Our priorities go attitude then count then suit preference. We signal as often as possible.
