Bids that Require Advance Preparation

We play precision system.
1C opening = 16+HCP any unbalanced hand or 17+HCP (except 20-21 HCP) balanced hand.
2C opening = 11-15HCP, 5C+4M or 6+C
2D opening = 11-15HCP, three suited with short D (4-4-1-4 or 4-4-0-5)
double after strong NT = 5+m / 4M

General Bidding Style

We frequently open good 10HCP hands. We open light and may open good four-card major at 3rd place. Preemptive openings are aggressive at non-vulnerable, and extremely aggressive at 3rd place non-vulnerable. 1NT opening = 14-16HCP, 2NT opening = 20-21HCP.

Opening Leads AND Leads in the Middle of the Hand

Opening leads: 3rd/5th vs suit, 2nd/4th vs NT; 0\2 lead. Default to lead 3rd/5th in the middle of the hand. May lead attitude in special situations.

Defensive Signals

Standard signals. Attitude > Count > S/P.
Odd/Even first discard. Odd is encouraging and Even is S/P.
Reverse counting on trump suits. Reverse smith signal.
Almost always signal at partner's lead. Only necessary signal at declarer's lead.
