Bids that Require Advance Preparation

Opening bids:
1C: clubs or balanced, 11-21. 2+ (can be 3352).
after which: 1D, 1H transfers; 1S diamonds, any strength.
1D: 4+ diamonds, unbalanced. Usually 5, except for 4441 and certain 5431s.
1m - 2M are 3-way bids, showing either a raise, a balanced hand (11-12 and 13-15), or a strong jump shift.

2D opening is weak multi: approx. 0-7 preempt in either major, no strong option.
2M openings are intermediate: approx. 8-10, with a decent suit.

Woolsey after opponent's 1NT opener (so 2D is either major)

General Bidding Style

Light preempts, including 5-card suits, possible in all seats except 4th, especially NV and in 3rd seat. We tend to open most balanced 11 counts.
14-16 1NT opening range, with occasional upgrades.

Mostly natural bidding style.

Opening Leads AND Leads in the Middle of the Hand

4th best against suits and NT, with standard honor leads. Ace is our power lead.

MUD from three low cards.

Defensive Signals

Upside down count and attitude; standard suit-preference. We give upside-down present count.

Our priority is attitude followed by count and S/P in that order.
