Bids that Require Advance Preparation

1 of a minor - 2H = 10-12 balanced. 1m-3m = mixed raise
1 of a major - 3C = 3 card limit; 1M - 3D = 4 card limit
mini-splinters after 1 of a major opening.
Vs 1N we play woolsey with DBL of weak = penalty

New suits after our weak 2's are NF.
Fit showing jumps by passed hands and transfers after partner's major and their (X).

General Bidding Style

We may open a bit light based upon vulnerability. If light we tend to have shape or a good opening suit. 3rd seat openers may be lead-directing with sub-minimum values. 4 card majors are possible. Favorable preempts in 1st chair can be a wide range for Lair but always bad for Rosenberg. Mixed raises in comp but if favorable can possibly be considered more preemptive. 5 card weak 2's are possible if non-vulnerable 1st/2nd seat [only Mark].

Opening Leads AND Leads in the Middle of the Hand

3rd and 5th vs. suits and in the middle of the hand unless attitude more important. 4th vs. NT
King from AK vs. suits. King is our power lead vs. NT.

Defensive Signals

Standard count and attitude.
Odd / even 1st discard by either player.
Generally we give attitude on partner's lead.
Standard count and standard remaining count.
We generally only signal when it is important to partner.
