Bids that Require Advance Preparation

We open 2C with 22+ HCP or 8.5+ quick tricks. After opening 2C, a jump shift to a suit indicates 8.5+ quick tricks, establishing that suit as trump.

General Bidding Style

Fairly solid openers, 5+ for majors, open somewhat lighter in 3rd and 4th, 15-17 NT, light preempts, Standard American responses.

Opening Leads AND Leads in the Middle of the Hand

3rd/5th against suits, 4th against NT, A asks for count, K for attitude, top of sequences.

Defensive Signals

Standard Count and Attitude, Count then Attitude against suits, Attitude then Count against NT. Try to show suit preference when the dummy requires an obvious switch in a suit.
