Bids that Require Advance Preparation

2D is "extended Flannery" maybe even 6H and 5S 10-15 pts
reverse good bad 2nt in competition
Namyats style jumps in competition 4C=H 4D=S
Cyclone (next higher suit or the other two suits) over strong C in direct seat 2D over precision 1D is natural 2C is majors
after 1m (3h) 8 is 4+ S 3S denies spades and looks for NT

General Bidding Style

2/1 with Gadgets (Major could be 4 in 3rd seat) Better minor
NT (14+-17) could include 5M or 6m

2C is strong and we use different methods after that:transfer responses; Garozzo (i.e.ANY 4M 6m) after 2C-2D. 2H response is less than 2Q

Opening Leads AND Leads in the Middle of the Hand

we lead Polish style 2nd and 4th (low from doubleton up to 10 X) against any contract (suit or NT) and if possible in the middle of the hand as well. Carding is UDCA

Defensive Signals

Defense is contextual; normally we give attitude but in certain situations will ask for shift or give count.
Standard Smith vs NT.
