Opening Leads AND Leads in the Middle of the Hand

3rd/low vs suits
4th best vs NT
A from AK asks attitude
K from AK asks count
Trick 1 vs. suits: if Ace is led and dummy has singleton in that suit or declarer obviously has a singleton in that suit, first priority is suit preference.
Middle of hand - attitude leads

Defensive Signals

Attitude then count then suit preference
Trump suit preference
Upside down count and attitude and discards, standard suit preference.
